How to Unarchive WhatsApp Chats

You can always Unarchive WhatsApp Chats that you have archived. The archive chat feature is there to hide an individual or group chat from your Chats to organize your conversations in a better manner. If you archive a chat, it does not delete the chat or back it up to Cloud. They stay archived when you receive a new message and you can see them by scrolling to the top of the Chats screen. You will not receive any notification from any of the archived chats unless you are mentioned in it or someone has replied to your messages.
