WhatsApp: How to Remove Top “Archived” Chat Box on Android


WhatsApp’s archived chat box appears at the top of the screen, which might be annoying for a lot of people. When you receive new messages from archived chats, WhatsApp will display a number in the same box to notify you of unread messages. You may have noticed a number next to the text “Archived”. It shows how many individual or group archived chats contain unread messages.

If you see the Archived box at the top of the screen, it means that all of your archived chats will always remain hidden and you will never see a new message from archived chats. But you can always change that in the settings section. Read on to find out more about it.

WhatsApp: How to Delete Top Archived Box on Android

Step 1: Open WhatsApp on your smartphone and tap on the Archived box, which is now at the top of the screen. WhatsApp will then open all your archived chats.

2nd step: Tap the three dots icon. It is to the right of the text “Archived”. Press “Archive settings” again.

Step 3: Disable the “Keep discussions archived” option. After disabling it, the Archived box will disappear from the top of the screen.

Disabling this option would mean that archived individual or group chats will not stay archived when you receive a new message from that individual or group chat. If you want them to remain archived, you should not deactivate the “Keep discussions archived” option.
