Group chats. We both love them and hate them.

Love them because it's a place where we can connect with all of our friends in one go and organise nights out where nobody gets left out.

Hate them…. because, well, getting 50 notifications all at once is a pain in the arse, especially when you just want to switch off and ignore the rest of the world.

Well, those days of ignorance may soon be over as Whatsapp are now adding a tagging feature to its group chats – even if you have you convos muted.

It works by using the @ symbol – just like Twitter and Instagram – so you can't pretend you just never saw the message.

We can see a lot of pointless checking our phones in the future.
