In the article about WhatsApp beta for Android 184.108.40.206 and WhatsApp beta for iOS 220.127.116.11 updates, we talked about the possibility to manage reactions notifications within WhatsApp Notifications Settings.
In the WhatsApp Desktop beta 2.21.2147.11 update, we found similar references to toggle the same setting within WhatsApp Web/Desktop Notifications Settings:
As you can see in this screenshot, when the feature to send message reactions will be released in a future update, a new setting is available that allows muting all notifications when you receive reactions. Unlike WhatsApp for Android, which will offer the setting to mute notifications for message reactions received in group chats, this option seems unavailable on the web/desktop client because it will just allow muting all reactions, without differences if the reaction notification is from a group participant or an individual chat.
This feature is under development and there isn’t a known release date, unfortunately. We will inform you when there is news in the next updates.
