How to hide conversations in WhatsApp without deleting them

The archiving feature in WhatsApp allows you to hide any individual or group chat from the chat screen, so it can be ready to show up again in the main screen. This helps you organize your chats better, and if you use WhatsApp for work, it also eliminates distractions.

Contacts or groups will not know when you have archived their chats, and you will continue to receive messages from them as usual, but you will not receive notifications about the hidden chats unless someone mentions you or directly responds to your message.
