How to Remove Someone from WhatsApp Group Chat Without Notifying?

Since WhatsApp is being used and the leading communication platform for both personal and official needs worldwide, several WhatsApp groups are also active for different purposes. Over time, several reasons exist for adding and removing a member to and from the WhatsApp group. This article will see how to remove someone from a group chat. We received multiple questions regarding the same, including how to delete someone from WhatsApp, take someone out of a group chat, delete WhatsApp group members, etc.

How to Delete Whatsapp Group Member Without Notification

The most commonly asked question is, How to remove someone from WhatsApp without Notifying them? There is no way to remove someone from WhatsApp without notifying them. Since the group chat history is available in their chat list anytime, the information will be available in the chat window when they are removed from the group and will be notified to every other member in the group. Note that there will be no special push notification message or an alert sent to that person or other group members. Still, there will be a message in the chat window saying that the particular users were removed.

How to Remove Someone from Group Chat

Once a member is removed, it will not delete the group chat list from their WhatsApp. The chat list will contain all the previous messages, but the person can’t type and send any message to the group. Also, they can’t see any new messages. The chat will also show a small message saying, ‘You are removed by (member name, who removed you).’

But of course, if you are removing someone from a group that is not active, then that person and any member in the group will know about the removal until they check the group chat. Once they open the chat, they can see a small notification. But one thing, if the group is flooded with so many messages after the removal, then it is challenging to find that notification. However, the removed person can still access the chat history on their phone.

So whenever they open the chat, they can see that notification saying ‘ removed you’ ( – it is the name of the admin). Since they are not a part of that group now, new messages won’t be available on their phone, and the message typing window will also not be open. So the only option is to read the old chat or delete the entire conversation.

Many people ask how to remove someone from a group text message. It is impossible since we cannot exclude or remove a person or a particular message.

As mentioned in my different post regarding the hidden features of WhatsApp, the company is adding more features all the time since WhatsApp is now the primary messaging application for all mobile phones. Also, this is one of the most requested features, so we may hope that WhatsApp may include these features in their future update.

Last time, we noticed that WhatsApp included some features that users are constantly requesting. For example, even after adding the group call feature in their application. Earlier, users were complaining about the issue that making a call to a specific member from the group chat window was not available.

Now, WhatsApp fixed it by adding a call button in the group chat and the feature and started rolling out to the users who make that feature more useful and more effortless. So in the same was this feature was also expected to be updated more effectively. So we will update that when it is released.

Since WhatsApp is now part of the Facebook group, more and more features are added yearly to keep the users active. As we saw in 2021, WhatsApp is adding more features in 2022 also, and we are expecting multi-device support and the disappearing message option, and many more.

  10. Since a group member is included with his/her consent it’s grossly illegal to remove him/her without consent. It’s damaging to his/her prestige and reputation and this defect has to be corrected immediately.
