Previously, the users were required to move the archived chats to the bottom of the main conversation list. This new feature brings its own sub-menu option which can be accessed by simply tapping on the three vertical buttons positioned at the top-right corner for selecting 'archived chats'. Moreover, the archived chats automatically become un-archived when the users will be receive a new message from the sender.
WhatsApp has named this new feature as 'Ignore Archived chats' which has initially spotted by WABetaInfo. The website gave the first look at this feature that can be found under Settings >Notifications. However, the feature is not enabled for the latest beta version and we can expect it to be rolled out to regular users soon.
