Mute single tab by clicking on the speaker icon right in the tab

There was this great flag in chrome to just enable exactly that: chrome://flags/#enable-tab-audio-muting

Sadly the flag was removed and there are no plans to bring it back. Reason being: “Per UI leads, we are not shipping this. Chrome has a policy against longstanding flags (they either ship or die), so this flag should disappear.” Source

Revision referring to the above credited bug: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src.git/+/479cc17585a64910853e9949b053499ecbeca9a5

There are multiple chrome extensions trying to mimic the functionality but sadly it is not possible to replicate the exact same UI.

This is an extension that comes pretty close: Tab muter
