WhatsApp group chats

Bye-bye noisy WhatsApp group chats!

Even though we’re huge fans of WhatsApp, group chats on the popular messaging service can sometimes get seriously noisy.

WhatsApp has added a new option to manage group chat threads, with archived chats now remaining archived and hidden, even when new messages are sent into the group.

To be clear, the archive feature is not new; users have always been able to hide WhatsApp chats. But now, they won’t get notifications of new messages to the chats that they’ve archived, essentially enabling them to hide them from view. Users will be able to check them out in their archive and re-activate them whenever they wish.

As tweeted by WhatsApp chief Will Cathcart:

“Have a WhatsApp group that’s a little noisy and cluttering up your inbox? With the new Archive, you can now keep an active thread out of your inbox, but still have access to it whenever you want!”
