    I am using whatsapp business account and i want to find a way to stop the app from showing notification when i am off work. I was looking for some kind of app the will stop an app for few hours or at set times and then turn it back.

    I found some apps that restrict me to open the app but they still show the app notification when someone send a message.

    At the moment manually close the up and start it again when needed but i would like to find another way and will appreciate if someone can help.

    Automate it, or Tasker, both in the play store

    On recent versions of Android you can just block notifications from a specific app (you have to remember to unblock them).

    Thanks for both advices.
    I have older Android and normally i close it and reactivate but i keep forgetting it and was looking for something to make it automate.

    Dannydet thanks for your advice.
    I have tried Automate it app and was able to make the app open on specific time but it seems like the option to close the app doesn't work well.

    If anyone has another option i will be happy to hear.

    I'm late to the party as always. I know you're sorted but this might help someone else in the future so I'll throw it out there. You can open a conversation you're having in Whatsapp and press the three dots at the top right and then select mute conversation. Then you get the option of permanent, 8 hours, one day or one week. Comes in handy if you don't want to mute every conversation.
