WhatsApp added a long-awaited feature with a new update. The instant messaging app adds unwanted chats to the ‘Archived’ folder and the chats are going to stay in the folder when new messages come in. The users will have more control over their inbox to organize their Archived folder and clear of non-priority messages from clouding up the top of their chat list.
Whatsapp said in the statement that “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. The new Archived Chats settings mean that any message thread that is archived will now stay in the Archived Chats folder, even if a new message is sent to that thread.”
Whatsapp added “We know that not everything always needs to be front and center for you. We want to make sure that WhatsApp remains a private and secure place where you can speak to the people who are most important to you and where you’re in control of your messages.”
If users do not want to use the new implementation can switch back to the original Archived folder implementation from the app’s settings.
