WHATSAPP ROLLS OUT ‘ARCHIVED CHATS’ FEATURE.
Archive on WhatsApp lets you organize your private messages and prioritize important conversations.
Previously WhatsApp archived chat would reappear whenever a new message arrives,
It will be pushed right back to the top of the list of messages which made the purpose of hiding them irrelevant.
According to the company, users have raised a concern about it.
“We have heard that users want their archived messages to stay tucked away in the Archived Chats folder, instead of moving back into your main chat list when a new message arrives”
“Archive on WhatsApp lets you organize your private messages and prioritize important conversations. Your Archived chats will now remain archived and muted but you can always change them back!” the company tweeted
How to keep chats archived on WhatsApp;
Do make sure that you have updated the app before following these steps..
