How do I find an archived conversation in Messenger?

Archiving a conversation hides it from your inbox until the next time you chat with that person. To find a conversation that you’ve archived:

  1. From Chats, tap Search at the top.
  2. Search the person’s name in the search bar.
  3. Tap the person’s name to open the conversation.

Note: you can unarchive the conversation and add it back to your inbox by sending the person a new message.
