You can no longer mute tabs in Chrome from version 63 onwards, the browser allows to mute sites only (not the individual tabs), let us see how we can do that.

Mute tabs in Chrome 63+

  1. Visit chrome://flags
  2. Search for Sound Content Setting and set it to Disabled
  3. Close and reopen the Chrome browser.

Now right click on the tab that is playing audio and choose ‘Mute tab’, that tab will be muted, you can able to unmute the tab like before.

Do know Google has determined to make site-wide muting option permanent in coming version Chrome 63 and the flag we mentioned may not last for a long period of time.
