WhatsApp has been updated with many new features and functions. One such feature of WhatsApp is the "Archived Chats". Now, what are archived chats? This are the chats that you want to hide or not interested to displayed in the chat lists. This chat conversation of that person will remain hidden until any messages is not sent by that person. So you put that conversation into Archive. Once you Archive the chat, it goes to Archive Folder in the WhatsApp chat window. This folder is displayed on top of the chat and to check the messages from the archived user, you either have to look into the folder or you must search the name or the number of the chat.

WhatsApp Archive Chats

The archive folder was previously hidden within the app but after a recent update, the archived folder sits on top of the chat window. In the new update, even if the archived user messages, the chat will remain hidden inside the box on the top. This has been an unpopular update and many users have tried to get rid of the same.
