Whatsapp Vacation Mode has been earlier in talks in 2018 but has been abandoned at that time, now again the work has been restarted by Whatsapp and for Android v2.20.206.2 beta version has been released. This new feature will be rolled by some new changes and forms. 

Talking about the Whatsapp new features, you should know about the Whatsapp disappearing message feature.

In the present version of Whatsapp, you can archive chats but the notification of chat will appear whenever you receive a message on it again, which means you cannot exercise the present feature permanently.

Soon Whatsapp might roll out the vacation mode feature that allows to mute archived chats, this can also work when you receive new messages which are not earlier possible. It is almost similar to mute the chat in which notification will not pop up when a new message arrives but Whatsapp has to be opened if one wants to see the message. In iOS, Whatsapp still has a feature through which you can ignore archived chat but not in Android
