Muted Conversations: One More Feature to Come with Windows Phone 8.1
Muted Conversations for Users of Windows Phone with the 8.1 Version, Easy Unmuting
Muted conversations is another piece of information in connection with Windows Phone 8.1. The news about the new features is coming in pieces. We already informed the audience about the video emulator. The new design of the action center is part of the changes to come with the new version. HID accessories support is another feature users can expect. To sum up, users can expect a comprehensive change with the new version. There is still some time before the 8.1 will step out in May.
Muted conversations information is a nifty addition. It seems a trifle, but it is a very important trifle. Users of the Windows Phone 8.1 version will be able to use the feature in the messaging app. Whenever somebody is tired of getting too many calls they will be able to mute all of them. That promises a period of no disturbance. It is very useful for busy owners of Windows Phone devices while they are at work.
The muted conversations feature will likely be used on conversations with other persons and with groups. So users will not block all of their contacts. They will just mute individual contacts or groups. But they will get messages from them. The no disturbance means that users will not be shown muted conversations in the Live Tile count. There will be no notifications of muted conversations.
The muted conversations feature will be able to be unmuted easily. That means people who have muted contacts to work undisturbed during their work periods will easily unmute them after the end of the work day. They will be able to get information on calls from unuted contacts shown. The muted conversation feature has been confirmed by the Windows Phone Central site. Thanks to them, users expecting the new 8.1 version can learn about one more new feature. They will be able to set an app of their choice as the default for voice navigation.
