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:

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
