Unzipping data to WhatsApp

The algorithm for unzipping a contact in Vatsap is the same for all operating systems.

How to unzip a contact in Vatsap depends largely on the operating system installed on the gadget used. At the same time, the algorithm of actions is the same for both iPhone and Android. Only the designation and location of the icons to be clicked on is changed.

What does it mean to archive data in Votsap

Archived chats in WhatsApp are private and group conversations, hidden from the general list of active conversations, located on the main screen of the application. This function is designed solely for the structured display of dialogs. It does not save space in the memory of the gadget.

Archived contact must be distinguished from blocked contact. Despite the fact that in the first case it will be hidden from the main screen, entering the conversation in the archive does not deprive the contact of the opportunity to contact the subscriber.

As soon as a new message is sent in the chat sent to the archive, it will immediately move to the list on the main screen.

WhatsApp archived chats are hidden from the general list of active chat,
hosted on the main screen of the application.

You can archive chat in 3 steps:

  • Find among all the correspondence available from the “Vatsap” main screen that you plan to hide.
  • Click on it and hold until a checkmark appears on it. When using the gadget on iOS, while in the “chats” section, swipe the dialog from right to left.
  • In the menu that appears at the top of the screen, click on the archiving icon (a white square with a green arrow pointing down, located on the right side). On iPhone, click on the “Archive” message that appears.
