Apart from this, in the beta update version 2.19.101 of WhatsApp Android, the location of the dedicated archived chats tool has also been changed. This tool is now visible in the main menu of the app’s homepage. This feature is currently live for all users which is in the latest beta update of WhatsApp Android.
The new beta update did not see any major changes or new features. The only noticeable change in the beta update is that the archive chat tools can be accessed by going to the three-dot icon on the right side of the homepage. WABetaInfo According to the report, WhatsApp is testing the holiday mode in the name of the new ‘Ignore Archive Chats’. This feature will prevent the archive chat from being automatically archived even after a new message arrives.
Explain that you can activate this feature by ignoring Settings> Notifications> Archived chats. This feature is currently under development, so users who have downloaded the latest beta update will not see this feature.
The thing to note is that the ‘Ignore Archive Chats’ feature is a bit different from the vacation mode tested in October last year. Vacation mode archive only prevents chat from archiving when muted. At the same time, ‘Ignore archive chats’ prevents both silent and mute chats from being archived.
