Did you know that WhatsApp allows you to archive conversations you’re not currently interested in participating in? Our guide will show you how this is done.
Note: These screenshots were captured in the WhatsApp application on iOS. Also note, if you’d rather delete a chat instead, check out our guide for deleting a chat in WhatsApp.
Step 1: Tap “Chats” at the bottom of the screen.
Step 2: Swipe from right to left on the chat you wish to archive.
Step 3: Tap “Archive.”
If you ever want to unarchive a chat, tap the “New Chat” button in the top-right corner of the Chats screen, select the proper recipient, and send them a new message. This will return the chat to your Chats window.
