Fix Archive Option / Thank you message

Firstly, 10/10 service for reading reviews and actually taking user feedback into consideration :)

I recently sent to improve the archive feature where I asked for the option to archive permanently which was implemented so highly appreciated :)

For more flexibility, however, please allow us to choose which individual chats to archive permanently and which to archive temporarily.

Archiving permanently is to stop intrusive chats from appearing on the chats page regardless of the messages sent without having to leave the chat group.

Unlike archiving temporarily however where I don’t mind for the chat to re-appear on the chats page (e.g. private messages), but I archive it mainly to avoid a crowded, chaotic chats page.

So instead of placing an option to archive *all* chats either permanently or temporarily, please allow archiving an individual chat to our liking.

Not as expected

I’ve been using WhatsApp for years, and it’s quite disappointing to see how slow of a progress it goes through...
As the most used chatting app, it’s missing a lot features. Not only that, but I also don’t understand what’s wrong with WhatsApp REMOVING features with every update.. in the latest update, you can’t view anything in the chat storage usage except its media; that means you can’t see how many text messages are in a chat anymore, no more separate control over pictures, videos, or even voice messages... now they’re terribly combined together and there’s absolutely no way you can delete each type of media alone like before...
I’m extremely disappointed for this loss, so please bring it back.

Overall, not the best chatting app out there, and if it wasn’t for the fact that everyone uses it, I wouldn’t even think of using this featureless app on a daily basis.

Just a few improvements

Great app but please consider the following:
- Custom Wallpaper for every chat? That would be great if I can choose a certain wallpaper for each chat not just one wallpaper background for all of them
- Videos that are too long... can you auto-divide them? Would be much much easier :’)
- Why do I need internet connection on my phone to use Whatsapp desktop? My phone was dead for a week or so and I couldn’t use Whatsapp desktop because of this :’)
