ip maddress

Multicast addresses management.
maddress can be abbreviated to m or maddr

ip maddress add - add a multicast address.
ip maddress delete - delete a multicast address.
ip maddress show - list multicast addresses.

      ip maddr [ add | del ] MULTIADDR dev STRING

      ip maddr show [ dev STRING ]

   address LLADDRESS (default)
      The link layer multicast address.

   dev NAME
      The device to join/leave this multicast address.  

These commands attach/detach a static link layer multicast address to listen on the interface. Note that it is impossible to join protocol multicast groups statically. This command only manages link layer addresses.
