WhatsApp has been working on vacation mode for more than a year now. It was reportedly scrapped but WhatsApp has resumed testing the feature. WhatsApp is now working on a ‘read later’ feature with vacation that will replace archived chats, and give users more control over chats.
This feature was spotted by WABetaInfo onWhatsApp beta version 220.127.116.11 for iOS. Read later is being tested on WhatsApp’s Android app as well. The new feature will not only replace archived chats but also improve it. When a chat is moved to read later, WhatsApp won’t send notifications for that chat. This is supposed to be the “vacation mode” that has been rumoured for a really long time.
