As the website wabetainfo.com reports, the current beta version of WhatsApp for Android (version 126.96.36.199) contained one or the other hint that the messenger could soon get a so-called vacation mode. The former had been discovered some time ago, it was reported earlier that WhatsApp stops working on vacation mode, but eventually, the function was stamped in again. The vacation mode enables messages that arrive in archived chats not to be automatically retrieved from the archive. This is exactly what is currently still the case and can be quite annoying.
With the new options discovered, you decide for yourself whether everything should be kept as before or whether the new messages in archived chats should arrive silently. According to the information, it should also be possible in the future for WhatsApp chats that have been inactive for at least six months to be automatically archived. It should be noted that the two innovations are still in development and therefore guaranteed not to be implemented as finished features in WhatsApp in the coming weeks.
This also applies to the so-called media guidelines, which could also be discovered in the current beta. These are known from Instagram, among others, and they allow stickers and other content that you want to put on pictures to be sent to be perfectly aligned.
