IN A NUTSHELL:
- Patch 1.16.4 for Minecraft will enable you to mute players in the chat;
- The filter will be applied on the client side of the game and switched off after logging out.
The developers responsible for Minecraft, Mojang Studios, are working on the next update marked 1.16.4. The patch, which is currently being tested in a pre-release version, introduces an interesting option, the ability to "mute" individuals in the chat.
Using the function is very simple - just press "P" on PC to see the number of players on the server. Next to the nickname of each of them there is an icon which we can click to hide all the messages published in the chat by that person. Importantly, a filter is applied on the client side of the game and currently it resets itself after each logout. However, it's possible that the operation of this feature will still change, developers have a lot of ideas on this issue, and the decisive factor will be the opinions of players (and their parents, in the case of younger users).
The update will also introduce some other changes, but they will be more technical (e.g. modification of the game's online code).
