  • (2021-11-23) Gaurav Rath: It's very useful for students especially, when you have to attend classes so you can mute that tab and binge your movie 🍿
  • (2021-11-22) Calvin D: Perfection can be so simple.
  • (2021-10-22) Dillinger R.: It downloads to Chrome nice and fast, but there are no short cut keys or a way assign any, I don't want to do extra clicking when I just click once and mute the twitch streamers I'm watching, with this extension I have to click multiple times just to get to the mute button. Why can't I just press M and it mutes, like most things.
  • (2021-09-28) Lorik Nimani: Tut exakt das was es soll, nicht mehr und nicht weniger.
  • (2021-09-12) flat mars society: i really need it and the code is (currently) efficient and without a virus or tracker
  • (2021-07-26) redowns: i dont know how to use it bruh
  • (2021-07-04) Shabbir D: Works great. finally can mute individual tab instead of the whole site. 5 stars from me.
  • (2021-06-15) Yousef A: Less convenient location than native tab mute button, but definitely gets the job done.
  • (2021-05-04) Claudia Madriaza: No puedo escuchar las otras reuniones
  • (2021-04-20) Mayank Mishra: Very useful extension when you need to join, multiple calls. Kudos.
  • (2021-04-17) Lesha Lyushen: I hope DEV will add the RButton option to mute without focus!
  • (2021-04-15) Adriana Zapardiel: Antes funcionaba pero ya no
  • (2021-04-11) Cecilio Sprayetti: Wish you could right click on the tab and mute it from there instead of having to click the extension icon but works well. I use it to get drops on Twitch
  • (2021-03-20) non serve con gruppi di meet aperti perché "comanda" la prima stanza aperta, così è impossibile usarla come si dovrebbe
  • (2021-03-17) Giuliana Madonia: Al momento non funziona. Mi servirebbe per lavorare in gruppi con più meet aperti ma "comanda" la prima stanza aperta: mutando/attivando si silenziano o attivano gli audio di tutte le stanze contemporaneamente ed è impossibile ottenere un risultato selettivo. Con rammarico devo toglierla perché così è inutilizzabile
  • (2021-03-11) Михаил Репин: Уж проще по клику ПКМ на вкладке со звуком и через пункт "выключить звук на сайте". Данное расширение не добавляет отключение звука при клике на соответствующем значке на влкадке со звуком.
  • (2021-03-09) Crusade: It works with google meets, that's all i needed
  • (2021-02-24) Isaiah Miranda: worked perfect I use it to listen to music while doing school work where I have to listen to them talking.
  • (2021-02-24) Shubham Bansal: Nyc extension , really helpful👍
  • (2021-02-08) Evan Golden: Does everything exactly as advertised, great extension to have
  • (2021-02-01) Justyna Niedospial: A bit useless since it mutes the whole site, not the tab.
  • (2021-01-29) Niaz Choudhury: Now i can mute the tab which chrome removed from a certain update
  • (2021-01-24) Ransom Access Memory: Working, but clunky interface. You have to mute tabs by clicking extensions > mute tab while browsing the tab you want muted. It should have been on the context menu or better yet, on a small audio icon on the tab like Opera browser does it.
  • (2021-01-17) Tamo ismyNAMEO: 300k users and only 80ish reviews? Here's a 5 star for it working great.
  • (2021-01-02) Kirk Miller: Really missed this feature in Chrome, works stupid easy as of Jan 2021. Thanks!
  • (2020-12-10) AXOLE: it's work! it's not like another adds this is the best add in my chrome
  • (2020-12-04) Kaleb Ennis-Davis: I had a class today where i needed to see both the students and the presentation. I attempted to use this extension but found the audio of both tabs was playing out of the first google meet tab I had opened. Any solutions as to how i could avoid hearing the audio out of both? or is this just an issue on google chromes end?
  • (2020-11-04) _ ⸻: it works
  • (2020-10-19) Bold Ram: Works really good. I so miss the on-tab functionality tho. The only thing that kept me with firefox was their mute tab function. I've reluctantly migrated and had to find a solution. This is the best substitute I have found till Chrome get their act together.
  • (2020-10-07) 邱哲儒: Just works as I want!
  • (2020-10-01) Gabriel Reis: This plugin was messing with my search on google, When the link is clicked, it changes to a diffente one. Example Autodesk foruns
  • (2020-09-22) Maria Clara Garavito Gomez: I can't listen other tabs!!!!
  • (2020-09-13) Matt Metz: This icon didn't do a simple click-once-to-mute, click-once-to-unmute on my computer. Clicking on the icon opened a mini-window which allows me to pause the video playing sound. That's multiple clicks, which isn't any better than right-clicking on the tab and then selecting "unmute site."
  • (2020-09-12) Altozz: I have been trying everyday I have 2 tabs open with audio from both, to mute one, but I need to mute the site, so I always forget next time I visit the site. This extension is definitely worth it. 5 stars
  • (2020-09-09) Brian H: Never really noticed it this option was missing until I had multiple YT tabs open and several waiting for live streams. You can't mute live streams before they start to air and didn't want to mute all of YT because I was still watching other stuff. A quick google search led me here. While it's not as easy as right-clicking the tab, it restores the same functionality as this removed feature. Thanks for making this.
  • (2020-09-08) Paulo Oliveira: Muito bom recomendo, cumpre o que promete
  • (2020-09-05) Júlio Luiz: Works as promised.
  • (2020-09-02) Patricia Camacho López: I could not reactivate the sound in tabs
  • (2020-08-29) Santhosh Hockey: dont install it because it doesn't work
  • (2020-08-28) Volkan Şahin: perfect
  • (2020-08-26) Eduardo: quem fez essa extensão, saiba que eu te amo.
  • (2020-08-24) James Isom: Does what it says. Little resources used, no additional permissions requested, no useless or sketchy fluff. Perfect.
  • (2020-08-24) Joshua Zink: Had a class today with students where I had multiple google meet rooms open. This extension did not work at all to mute the multiple rooms I had open in separate tabs. I have gotten it to work with a single room in the past. Don't know why it didn't work to mute multiple tabs simultaneously.
  • (2020-08-21) Anyone who complains about this extension is lazy, overly picky, or a troll. Perfect extension.
  • (2020-08-17) Artur Silva do Carmo: brabo
  • (2020-08-17) Cj TAN: very nice
  • (2020-08-02) Zach Fett: Nearly perfect, my only real complaint is that it auto-mutes all tabs by default, and there's no way to whitelist domains, so every time I browse sites that already auto-mute videos like Twitter, I have to remember to first unmute the extension, then unmute the video itself. Just a bit annoying.
  • (2020-07-24) Alejandra Hernández: I have a problem because I can't listen to the other tabs.
  • (2020-07-24) This is Rehan Khan: zb
  • (2020-06-29) Lucas Abreu: Great extension, works as described. I just can't seem to find how to associate it with a keyboard shortcut, when i right click it, the "options" option is grayed out

  • (2021-09-03, v:1.4) Toxick Toe: Only Works on current tab
    This only works on the tab you are on. When you move off the tab, it is unmuted and pointless. I try to use this when lurking in Twitch streams, so I have to mute the tab which I cannot do because it is not doing what it is supposed to. The only way around it is to have them in different windows rather than tabs which defeats the object.
  • (2021-07-04, v:1.4) Leona Gatz: White icon in dark themes
    I have noticed that the icons are available in a white color, and after i installed the plugn the icon showed in white the first time, but has been black ever since which renders it invisible. Is there some option i can check so the plugin always uses the white icons?
  • (2021-05-05, v:1.4) Justin Muir: Hello
    Sometimes this app does not mute the tab and I have to restart chrome
  • (2021-03-29, v:1.4) Daniela Donati: Assenza audio per docente
    Sto lavorando da qualche giorno in piccoli gruppi ed ho installato mute tab. Per i ragazzi tutto bene, riescono a lavorare senza essere disturbati, quando mi sposto di stanza loro mi sentono bene. L'unico intoppo è che io non riesco a sentire loro, quindi se devono comunicarmi qualcosa o scrivono sulla chat o tornano nella stanza principale. Qualcuno ha qualche suggerimento? sto sbagliando qualcosa? Grazie.
  • (2021-03-23, v:1.4) miriam ceriani: Mute Tab
    Ho aggiunto l'estensione per lavorare in Meet con piccoli gruppi. Ho creato 3 stanze e Mute Tab funziona sulla prima e sulla terza ma la seconda si aggancia alla prima: se silenzio la prima si silenziano entrambe, stessa cosa se apro l'audio. Inoltre in tutte le stanze si sente quando io parlo anche solo con un gruppo....avete qualche accorgimento da suggerirmi?
  • (2021-03-22, v:1.4) Lidia Benedetti: Corretto funzionamento di Mute Tab
    Mi è capitato che quando apro più videoconferenze con meet, alcune si sentono e altre no. Come fare???
  • (2021-03-05, v:1.4) Alessia Prad: non funziona
    agisce solo sulla prima stanza aperta, le altre non funziona
  • (2021-03-02, v:1.4) Roberto Seidenari: Google meet
    Funziona a tratti ma la maggior parte delle volte le varie stanze sono mute e tutto l'audio viene riportato nella prima stanza aperta
  • (2021-01-15, v:1.4) PROF. ASCARI: non funziona più..
    Da qualche giorno, quando apro più videoconferenze con meet, alcune non si sentono e altre danno in contemporanea il proprio audio e quello di altre... Risolvete per favore!!
  • (2021-01-14, v:1.4) Carine Jutras: Google Meet
    Hi I am trying to keep track of 6 Google Meets using the Mute tab to not hear all at once. The mute tab is only working on 1 Google Meet. So when I mute, it mutes all 6 and when I unmute I hear all. Is there a way around this?
  • (2020-12-04, v:1.4) Antonella Di Fabrizio: Non funziona
    ho provato ad utilizzarlo in google meet per lavorare con diverse stanze ma non funziona :Muta tutte le schede contemporaneamente e solo attraverso la prima scheda
  • (2020-11-25, v:1.4) Marzia Rota: Non funziona
    Mute tab silenzia tutte le stanze contemporaneamente, oppure nessuna. Così non si riesce a lavorare.
  • (2020-11-06, v:1.4) marc christmas: Mute tab not working
    I have 3-5 simultaneous meetings and the mute tab function will only work on one of the tabs and it mutes all the tabs. Not able to mute the tabs I want. Please advise.
  • (2020-10-29, v:1.4) Elsa Haun: Malfunctioning with multiple Google Meet tabs
    I need to run multiple Google Meets, in separate tabs, and be able to mute them individually and pop into the meetings to check in. Mute Tab has been working sporadically for this purpose, but no longer wants to work correctly. Sometimes it will mute all of the tabs or none at all, or it will not mute anything when I click it. Please help!
  • (2020-08-24, v:1.4) Natalia ISAS: Can't open the options
    Hi. I can't open the options to mute all de tab not active.
  • (2020-08-20, v:1.4) Marcelo Sapoznik: Option in grey
    I installed the extension in Chrome (mac OSX) but the option chance appears in grey, then I don't have chance to select any option
  • (2020-07-07, v:1.4) johnny G Mills: Mutes all tabs of same website since a few days/week
    Hi Dev, First of all I was really pleased to find your plugin. I host multiple webinars in parallel and like to switch between both to make sure they are going well. Sadly since a short while MuteTab mutes all tabs of the same website VS just that tab. Maybe something changed?
  • (2020-05-11, v:1.4) Silvia POLITI: funzionamento
    se muto la prima stanza mi si mutano anche tutte le altre stanze di meet. Perchè?
  • (2020-03-11, v:1.4) 조현균: shortcut
    Do you have any plans to support a shortcut? If so, it would be more convenient.
  • (2019-12-14, v:1.4) Blasiel Quesada: Unmute previously unmuted tab?
    Would it be possible to make the app unmute a tab automatically if it was previously unmuted and got muted from a tab that just got closed? It's kinda hard to explain, but basically Tab A is playing a video, but you go to Tab B and play a video there. Tab B now mutes Tab A. You close Tab B and Tab A now automatically unmutes without having to manually return to the tab yourself.
  • (2019-10-01, v:1.4) Konf: Minor improvements
    1. I have white theme, but icon that appears in RMB context menu of a tab is also white. 2. RMB context menu of the extension has two same named options - Mute Tab, but first is the chrome store link, and second is mute action. One of them should be renamed to avoid misunderstanding. 3. Also you can fix blank icon bug when extension is re-enabled from chrome extensions list. Thanks!
  • (2019-09-04, v:1.3) 山内貴実子: Black icon hard to see on black theme
    Hi! The extension itself works perfectly, but the icon (which I assume is black) is practically invisible on the black UI theme I have for Chrome. Maybe you could put an outline on it or something?
