Late last year, a WhatsApp feature called “Vacation Mode” was being tested. And it allowed you to not receive new notifications from archived chats. This tool has now arrived in WhatsApp Beta. But with a different name and closer to the actual function it performs: “ignore archived conversations.”
You can now archive individual groups or conversations in the messenger. But they will return to the top of the home screen whenever someone else talks back. With the new option enabled, all archived conversations will stay that way until you change your mind and select the unarchive option.

In addition, all the archived chats are now organized in one place. The option to access them will appear when you scroll the messenger home page. Another possibility of using this function is when you no longer want to receive messages from a group, but prefer to avoid the embarrassment of leaving it.
What’s new is available in WhatsApp Beta 2.19.101 and still have no date to reach the final version of the application.
