The latest beta release for WhatsApp on Windows also comes with new icons for Media, Files, Links, Encryption, and Groups that appear in the chat options.

Instant messaging app WhatsApp has been spotted testing an archived chats feature on Windows. This feature is already there on mobile devices and will now allow users to do the same via their Windows PC. The new feature has been spotted by WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo in the WhatsApp for Windows beta version 2.2213.3.0 and allows users to archive and unarchive their chats from the Windows app itself. According to reports, the feature has been in testing for beta users in the Universal Windows Platform version of WhatsApp, which is currently under development as a native app for Windows.

The report in WABetaInfo says that the archive feature is not that smooth in the beta version, and unarchiving chats doesn’t refresh the WhatsApp chats list. The feature to archive and unarchive chats is already available in the mobile app. The latest beta release for WhatsApp on Windows also comes with new icons for Media, Files, Links, Encryption, and Groups that appear in the chat options.

The WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.22.8.11 shows that the company is working on a solution to let users send WhatsApp messages to people not on their contacts list.
