WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo is reporting that WhatsApp for Android has already included a “Silent Mode” that hides the notification dots for muted chats. This means if you mute a chat on WhatsApp, you won’t see how many new messages you’ve received in that chat directly from the WhatsApp icon on your Android smartphone.
According to the WABetaInfo news, it announced that a “Vacation Mode” is in the pipeline that has apparently been in works for some months. The feature is said make archived chats that have been muted to remain archived when a new message arrives in those chats.
WhatsApp is also reportedly working on a Linked Accounts feature that will let users link their account with external services.
