What does "muting" mean in this context?

Muting someone in a text chat environment essentially means temporarily silencing notifications for their messages. Muting them allows you to stay in the chat and see their messages later, but you won't be interrupted by notification sounds or pop-ups for their specific messages during the muted period.

Does Ozeki Chat let my friend know they have been muted?

No, the only holder of that information is you.

Is muting the same as blocking in Ozeki Chat?

No, as the muted person will still be able to send you messages, you are just not going to receive notifications about it. Whereas a blocked person will be unable to contact you. Which is better, is up to your situation.
