Can You Leave a Group Text Without Anyone Knowing?

Want to Leave a Group Text Without Anyone Knowing? Here's How

No matter what kind of texter you are, you've probably felt — at one point or another — stuck in a sticky group text situation you weren't quite sure how to escape. Luckily, it's possible to stealthily dip from a conversation without alerting everyone you've gone.

WhatsApp is everyone's favourite universal WiFi-based messenger app for both communicating abroad and Android-inclusive group chatting and offers several ways to secretly escape an unbearable conversation. In addition to muting incoming notifications, you can opt to disable "Alerts," which allows you to exit any group chat without notifying others. Even simpler, you can swipe left on a particular conversation and click "Exit," which will allow you to remove any chat and all of its accompanying unwanted notifications without actually leaving the conversation.

Sadly for both iPhone and Android users, there are no alternative loopholes to disguise this abrupt exit. Your best bet is to either mute the conversation entirely, find a tactful way to excuse yourself, or just hope that enough members have also muted the chat for long enough that your self-removal notification gets sufficiently lost in a sea of other messages. Though if you foresee a group chat ever getting rough, it also never hurts to rehearse that pro-WhatsApp argument.
