Unwinding is about to get a whole lot easier when you’re on your next holiday courtesy of WhatsApp’s new feature...

WhatsApp has become the ultimate app to connect and communicate with loved ones around the globe and in your city. 

However, the notification pings follow us wherever we go, making it difficult to truly unwind and disconnect, especially if we're on holiday. 

Thankfully now, the messaging service is launching a new feature that will help you get that much needed time to relax with its 'Vacation Mode' functionality. Whilst you can currently mute your chats and notifications, this new feature will let users completely mute all group chats so that your homescreens stay notification-free until you either unlock your screen or open the app itself.

According to Independent, "it is unclear when this new feature might launch, though it could come as soon as the next scheduled update, which are usually rolled out every few weeks or so".

If would be perfect if the new feature rolled out just before the winter holidays...
