WhatsApp has an archive chats feature that helps users to organise their chats better by decluttering their inboxes. Now, the company is rolling out a new feature that is aimed at making this feature even better.
WABetaInfo reports that the Facebook-owned messaging app has started rolling out a new feature that will keep all your annoying chats hidden for good.
As of now, archived chats can be accessed by scrolling to the bottom of your home screen and it pops on the top as soon as you get a new message in the archived chat. Now, the company is testing a new feature that will keep the archived chats hidden even when you receive a new message.
The company has started rolling out a feature called ‘New Archive’ on WhatsApp beta for Android 184.108.40.206. This feature will house all your archived chats. It will also mute all the incoming messages that you might get in those chats.
If you are a beta tester, you can access this feature by following this path: Settings > Chats > Keeps chats archived. When you toggle this button on, all your archived chats will be tucked away out of your sight for good. And if you don’t want to use this section, you can simply toggle it off.
That said, this feature is being rolled out to Android beta users only. You might have to wait longer to get it if you are using the regular version of the app. – Hindustan Times, New Delhi/Tribune News Service
