There is also a possibility that in the upcoming change in interface, the Archive Chats option may be pulled on the top of chat list.

Messaging platform WhatsApp is working to bring ‘Vacation Mode’ feature for its users. The new talked-about Vacation Mode is expected to give users the ability to keep archived chat in archive even when a new message arrives. Right now, whenever a new chat comes, the company will unarchive the chat and therefore, bringing Vacation Mode will be able to prevent archive chats from being unarchived.

According to a report by the WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo, the company is actively working on bringing this feature as improvements have been seen in the latest WhatsApp for Android beta. The improvement in the Vacation Mode feature in WhatsApp Beta for Android v2.20.206.2 highlighted that the company is developing it along with inclusion of UI tweaks to the archived chats section. As the company is still on it, the feature has not been out for public beta testing as of now.

Prior to this, the company added other updates to beta. WhatsApp, in the past beta updates, worked on prevention of muted archived chats to get automatically unarchived whenever a new message arrived. However, with the new beta release, users will need not to mute the chats to keep them.

There is also a possibility that in the upcoming change in interface, the Archive Chats option may be pulled on the top of chat list. This will make the visibility of Vacation Mode better. The company is also working to bring a new banner for Archived Chats feature in the new update. The banner will read “Move chats you want to keep muted here.” While WhatsApp has been working on this new feature, it has not been available for users on the latest beta version.

WhatsApp to roll out ‘vacation mode’ that will let you ignore archived chats

Cape Town –We have all done it. We archive conversations for various reasons because as the saying goes “Out of sight, out of mind” – that is, until the contact messages again. This not only unarchives the chat but also puts the conversation back on the top.

WhatsApp Messenger vows to fix this by releasing its “vacation mode”. This feature will allow users to hide notification from archived texts.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp started to develop it under the name “Ignore Archived Chats”, but the development was later abandoned.

However, in the WhatsApp beta for Android 2.20.199.8 update, WhatsApp was finally starting to implement the feature again and has included several improvements.

“Vacation Mode is a new feature available in a future update that allows to keep in the archive your chats when new message arrive. If you decide to use the vacation mode in the future update, chats won’t be automatically unarchived anymore,” said WABetaInfo in a post.

With the Vacation mode, there will also be changes about the UI. “Archived Chats” will be moved at the top of your chat list.

It is not yet certain when WhatsApp is going to release the feature but it is expected to come to mobile phones soon.

WhatsApp has recently announced a new feature called disappearing messages, where once enabled, all new messages of your individual or group chats will automatically disappear after a certain amount of time.
