Questions and Answers

Delete the chat when slide instead archiving?

Hi, when I slide the chat, the first button showing is archive not delete and if I keep sliding it will archive right away. Is it possible to change to delete? I have iPhone 6s.. Thanks

Unfortunately, even though many users prefer deleting chats, WhatsApp developers insist on hiding it under the "More" button. This means that you will have to pull the chat left and then tap on "More" to reveal the menu where you can delete a chat. Then, you have to confirm the deletion. This is very inconvenient, but it is the only way for now.
