In the next console patch for ARK: Survival Evolved, Studio Wildcard and Abstraction Games will let you “hold down the map key to quickly switch between Whistle Groups. Toggling NAMES!! (yes!!) and the regular options (HUD/3rd person) – no longer hotbar based. This means you can hide your dino names in your breeding pens.”

What do you think of the new update?
