Is WhatsApp Vacation Mode an iOS WhatsApp Update?

The WhatsApp vacation mode feature will help users to archive old chats, even as a new message arrives. As stated earlier, the new mode aims to help users keep a permanent record of their chats. Currently, there is no such feature of hiding the chats as WhatsApp only pushes the archived chats to the bottom. However, whenever a new message arrives in the archived chat, it pops back on the top. Also, the current WhatsApp has notifications section with two toggle buttons.  The current archive feature is not like muting chats as the muted chats still appear in the same order in the app.

The WhatsApp vacation mode, on the other hand, seeks to change this by keeping the archived chats hidden. Once the feature is rolled out, WhatsApp will include a dedicated section that will be present on the top of the chat window. From is very section, the users will be able to access their hidden chats along with a Notification button. This notification button will also allow users to customize the section as per their requirements.
