WhatsApp is known for testing numerous features in its app under the beta mode. Though most of them even out to non-beta users, there are some of them which don’t.
This time the WhatsApp has done testing on ‘new’ modes in the app that may reduce your addiction to some amount. As seen by WhatsApp Beta info, the website that keeps track on the upcoming WhatsApp features, the firm may add a new Silent mode option next to a ‘Vacation’ mode.
