WhatsApp Adding Tweaks to its Functionality: Report

The app is also working on the much-awaited iPad support

Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp is still developing its previously announced “Vacation Mode”, but has changed its name to “Ignore Archived Chats” and added certain tweaks to its functionality.

As part of the further development of this feature, WhatsApp’s beta version for Android 2.19.101 shows that the “Ignore Archived Chats” feature would prevent the archived messages from coming on top of the chat if new messages on the chat arrived, WABetaInfo reported on Thursday.

Currently, an archived chat automatically unarchives once a new message is recieved on that chat.

Announced last October, the old test feature “Vacation Mode” prevented chats from getting unarchived only if the chat were muted.

The instant messaging app is also working on also presenting a new “Archived” cell in the main Chats tab, that would appear on sliding down the chat list.

Lately, the messaging app has been testing and adding a plethora of new features for its over 1.5 billion global users.

The app is also working on the much-awaited iPad support. (IANS)
