How to Hide Chats on WhatsApp Messenger
Until now, WhatsApp would allow you to hide certain conversations but they would reappear whenever a new message arrives, pushing them right back to the top of the list of messages which defeated the purpose of hiding them in the first place.
However, WhatsApp has revealed that it has moved to hide chats in a separate folder without archived feeds reappearing in the main section upon receiving a new message.
How to Hide Chats on WhatsApp
1. Open the WhatsApp application
2. Tap on the ‘More options’ section on the ‘Chats’ tab
3. Select ‘Chats’, then ‘Chats history’, and then ‘Archive all chats’
To send one single chat conversation into the archive section, you must tap and hold on to the chat that you want to hide.
