To delete a WhatsApp group

Creating a group on WhatsApp is easy – so groups are created for all sorts of occasions, such as a holiday, a birthday, a game night, or a group session. This can quickly get out of hand, as you become a member of dozens of groups that are often used only for a given fact and then never again.

If you want to stay in a group, but only read messages when it suits you, the function is to mute the group. You can also leave a group. You will no longer receive messages, but the group will still be displayed in your list. How to finally delete the group from your phone, we show you in our guide.
