WhatsApp experience is almost similar on all smartphones, however, there are a few features that are only available for Android smartphone users. One such feature that is available only for Android smartphones is the ability to hide multiple chats at once. The Facebook-owned platform offers an option to hide your chats in the archived folder. The folder is hidden and the chats stored in it are not visible on the WhatsApp home screen.
Open WhatsApp app on your Android smartphone.
Long press on any one chat that you want to hide or archive.
Tap and select the other chats that you want to hide or archive.
Tap on the archive button next to the mute icon at the top bar.
Once you hide your chats, they will be moved to the Archived folder. It is worth noting that archived chats will stay in that folder with notifications turned off to reduce interruptions. You can change this feature by heading into Settings.
Open WhatsApp app on your smartphone.
Swipe down from the home screen with all the chats.
You will be able to see the Archived folder on the top. Tap on it.
All the chats that you have archived will be visible in this folder.
To unhide or unarchive your chat, long press on it and press on the unarchive chat option in the top bar.
