The notifications can be muted for a certain time period as required for a user.

WhatsApp developers now realize that their app needs a bit of color and hence they are apparently moving towards the kind of customizability that WhatsApp plus has been providing to its users.
The users of WhatsApp for Android would also be able to make changes to their application like setting the notification light and tones, the kind of notifications that pop up, the length of time for which the vibration occurs, and make other modifications in the way notifications are presented.
