Guide: How to Mute Audio on a Chrome Tab

In one of the latest updates, Chrome has a feature that puts up a speaker icon next to a tab where audio or video is playing. It may seem like a minor, minor upgrade, but make no mistake, this is a lifesaver. Especially when one of those auto-playing video ads starts on a web page. Rather than wasting your time searching through all the tabs you have open, you can navigate directly to the tab where the video / audio is playing and stop it. When adding the speaker icon, the developers covertly injected one feature that can turn the icon into a mute buttonHowever, the feature is still experimental and therefore needs to be upgraded from the Chrome flags page. However, it is ‘experimental’ meaning it may not work and could potentially break your Chrome. So proceed at your own risk. We’re quite the risk factors here at Guiding Tech, so let’s take a look how to quickly mute tabs in Google Chrome.

Enable Chrome Mute Button

Because this is a flag feature, Open up the chrome: // flags / page and search for the feature that reads Enable tab audio muting UI control. If you are browsing from Chrome, you can click this link to go there. Now you just need it feature and restart the browser. Make sure to use the reboot button at the bottom of. This will help you keep session history during the reboot.

You should now see the speaker icon on the tabs playing audio, but this time the icons are interactive and you can simply click on them to mute the entire page. The control doesn’t extend to increasing or decreasing the volume of that tab, at least not at this point. But it is good enough for a start.

The habits Feature

The feature can come in handy when you are listening to online radio or a music streaming website and you suddenly find an interesting video you want to watch. Rather than opening the music tab, you can instantly mute the song for now using the audio icon and when you are done with the video, just click the same icon again to go back to your audio stream.

Cool Tip You can convert YouTube videos into floating PIP screens and watch them while working on other Chrome tabs with this simple extension. Also, if you need a little focus while reading an article, the mute button is just a click away. In short, it saves time and that’s enough to convince me to use the feature


I’ve been looking for a browser for years feature which can automatically pause or mute music or video when user plays audio in another tab. But I have the feature on any browser which, as I recently discovered, may be due to certain limitations. However, the mute button is the closest to what I want when it comes to managing media output in the browser. I hope it works as smoothly for you as it does for me.
