WhatsApp has finally come up with the feature that was long-awaited with their latest update. The application is going to allow you to make an Archive folder for the chats. This feature is also going to have the new messages available there, and instead of the chat coming up, it will stay in the archived folder itself.
The good part about the feature is that it lets the users have better control over the inbox and the ways by which one organizes the archive folder. It helps users in staying clear of the messages that aren’t their priority and doesn’t disturb their routine work as they don’t need to constantly check on the phone on who messaged.
The other messages that you didn’t archive will be visible as usual. This is a great step by the developer team and helps the users immensely. One can make sure that the application with these archived messages stays in a secure and private place and you are only speaking to people that are closest to you.
You will be the one in control of the messages that you need to receive. You will need to download the newer updated version from the Google Play store and then join the beta program of Google. Once the application gets updated, and installation is complete, you need to follow some simple steps.
Here we shall take a look at the simplified step-by-step guide, so keep reading!
