More about WhatsApp’s new feature
Until now the archived chats feature was a temporary solution to ignore chats. Once someone archived a chat, it wouldn’t reappear until the other person texted again. Though this worked, sometimes one might mistakingly open the chat and have to reply. While the other times, it’s just irritating for the chat to popup and needs to be archived again.
But now the “read later” feature will let you mute chats and store them in the read later section. And unless and until as user you would want to look for any new updates you won’t get any notification. This is different from the chat muting feature in which the chats still popup but there aren’t any notifications.
