The feature also allows you to select to be notified if you have been mentioned in the group. However, if you are in a lot of Group Conversations on iMessage, you may want to turn off notifications for mentions in Messages.

Prior to the release of iOS 14, if you muted any group conversation in iMessage, you would not be notified when another user mentioned you in the chat.
