Turning off the new message blue dot

Questioner General

I'm part of a couple texting groups with relentless testers. I have the groups on mute, but the little blue dot/moon still shows every time there is a new text. I don't necessarily want to leave the text group, but I also don't need the blue new message indicator, because, well, there is always a new message. Is there a way to turn it off?

That's a great question you have about turning off the blue message indicator when you have the notifications turned off for a group message. At this time, it's not possible to turn off the blue indicator for new messages. You can check out these articles for how to Use Messages on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and Use notifications on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch for the options available to you.
