Chrome: Mute audio in Tab

I wanted to mute sounds from some websites that are open in tabs. Some are irritating ads, some are help avatars that have a default 'hello how can I help'.

Listed below are the steps to how I configured the mute on the Chrome browser tabs

  1. Open Chrome
  2. Type the following in the address bar and press enter
  3. chrome://flags/#enable-tab-audio-muting
  4. Click on the Enable link
  5. After enabling it will be highlighted as shown below
  6. Restart the browser
  7. Mute option appears on the browser tab
