WhatsApp’s vacation mode is now called Read Later
After the release of WhatsApp beta version 188.8.131.52, some people have analyzed the application to find out what features could be hidden.
The feature known as vacation mode has been in development for months. In the latest version, it is called “Read Later”, a feature that we already knew about.
In WhatsApp, when you archive a chat it reappears among your messages once you receive a new notification. The chats that are inside “Read Later” would have the difference of staying inside the folder regardless of whether you receive new messages in those conversations or not, adopting a style similar to Telegram has.
