Explainer: What is WhatsApp? -

As per new Archived Chats settings, a message thread that has been archived will now stay in the Archived Chats folder, even if a new message pops out.

These chats will remain tucked away permanently until or unless a user manually chooses to unarchive a conversation. The users will always have an option to revert to the previous version of archived chats.


The company further said that it wanted to make sure that WhatsApp remains a private and secure place where users can talk to those who are important to them, and where they are in control of their messages.
