WhatsApp is working on Instagram account linking and archiving chats in vacation mode. WhatsApp is said to be working on three new features for its app, including the ability to link accounts with Instagram, in order to improve chat and alerts for its 1.5 billion users.
According to WABetaInfo, a famous blog that analyzes WhatsApp-related advancements and forthcoming features, Vacation and Silent Mode are two other features under development at WhatsApp.
The account connecting function may give privacy-conscious users further nightmares about data sharing and leaks, but it appears to have been built especially for WhatsApp Business, so that enterprises may easily sell on Instagram while communicating with buyers or potential purchasers through WhatsApp. According to WABetaInfo, references to account connection may also be seen in the regular WhatsApp program. Under your profile settings, you’ll see the Instagram Linked Accounts option.
Another feature that could be coming soon is the ability to prevent archived chats from being unarchived when a new message is received in that chat. If you have already switched on Mute notifications for that chat, it will stay muted when using the Vacation Mode function. This means you can safely archive a bothersome WhatsApp group without having to leave it.
Apart from Vacation Option, WhatsApp may soon offer a silent mode for muted chats, which would obscure the unread count symbol. This is turned on by default, but you can modify it to behave the way it does now.
