So WhatsApp provides you with the feature to mute them and check only when you want them.
Open the group, then open the Menu key > Mute. You can block notifications for eight hours, a week or a whole year. On Android, you can choose to display notifications in the top bar, but they will not give an audible alert.

Whatsapp is a most useful app and if you not using it, just get it download from the official site and start using it. Another alternative to this app is Telegram app or GB Whatspp but its users are less so most of them not using it but it has more features than it.
Another wonderful app which I use is a Smartcric app as I am cricket lover. If you are also cricket fan it will be my bonus recommendation for you to use it.
In the end, I hope you would not have been using all features of Whatsapp till now. If not start using them and enjoy it. And also please share which features you love most and what you started using most after reading it.
