WhatsApp vacation mode and linked accounts will be launched soon – Report.
WhatsApp has always been working on and trying to bring in new features to the app on a regular basis and this time it is heard that WhatsApp is reportedly working on to include vacation mode and linked account features. The new ‘Vacation Mode’ is an extension of the company’s ‘Silent Mode’, which was recently rolled out to Android users.
The new ‘Silent Mode’ hides any notification dots for muted chats on the app, which means the users will not see how many new messages are in the muted chats from the WhatsApp icon on the device. This new feature is pre-activated for all WhatsApp users with the latest update for the app. The vacation mode will improve this feature even further so that muted archived chats stay archived even on receiving new messages.
Currently, WhatsApp unarchives any such chats, when there are new messages to read. The report states that users will have full control over the feature through the notification settings panel of the app. The new linked account feature will enable users to connect their WhatsApp account to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
