Steps to Archiving chats on Telegram

There are two ways in which you can archive your chats. You are able to archive them until that person you were chatting with sends you a new message, or, you are able to archive the chats until you decide that you want to unarchive it and start chatting with that user once again. We will explain to you both ways of how you can to this.

Archiving chats until a person sends you a message:

This is a really, super simple thing to do. You just need to find that chat, place your finger on it, and swipe left. It is as simple as that, really you have now archived a chat.
