WhatsApp has been testing the Always mute option for a long time, and now it has finally released it for the users. It is worth noting that once you mute a chat, you will receive messages sent to the group but your phone will not vibrate or make noise when they are received.
Another feature that’s more requested by Whatsapp users is ‘Vacation Mode’.This feature is reportedly scrapped but it recently appeared again and is expected to roll out son.
Vacation mode on Whatsapp keeps archived chats permanently hidden. At present, archived chats show up on top whenever a new message is sent. But with Vacation mode, archived chats will remain hidden and not pop up on top.
