The team behind Google Chrome for computer seems to be working on a new feature that would be welcome by a majority of the users.

Google Chrome is likely testing permanent muting of websites

As per a recent Android Police report, Google Chrome will son let you permanently mute specific websites. The switch that will make this possible is being experimented within the Canary branch of Chrome as of now. Currently, the toggle to mute specific websites can be found inside the Page Info bubble as seen in the image above.

Once you mute a specific website from the Sound option on the Page Info bubble next to the Address Bar on Chrome, it will remain silent until you unmute the website. This is very different from the muting function on Chrome that exists currently. For now, muting can be done only on a tab by tab basis. Moreover, once you close the muted tab or the browser itself, the action will be undone. Eventually, the ability to mute websites until you undo the action will be very useful if you get annoyed with the auto-playing videos.

If the experimentation of Chrome's permanent muting option is successful, we can expect the same to be implemented as a feature on the stable branch of the browser. If this happens, it is likely to show up on the Chrome browser sometime in the coming months.

If you prefer using the cutting edge Chrome Canary browser, then you can install the same on your computer or laptop to give it a try. You can try the permanent muting feature a try by using the flag, "--enable-features=SoundContentSetting". Anyways, we recommend you to wait for a while and try the feature once it is rolled out to all the Chrome users officially by Google.
