How to Hide Alerts for Group Messages

Swiping right reveals this handy feature.

Have you ever been part of a group message that is annoyingly active? You want to see the conversation, but don't want the constant interruptions that can be a part of an active group.

In iOS 11, Apple made it much easier to hide the alerts for all messages, but more importantly group messages.

To hide alerts for messages:

1 - Open the messages App and find the conversation

2 - Swipe right to find the 'Hide Alerts' option, and select it.

You will now longer receive notifications about the message conversation, but can still view the message conversation. 

3 - You'll see the 'Do Not Disturb' (moon icon) next to the conversation

4 - To activate alerts, swipe right and select 'Show Alerts'.
