What is the difference between deactivated and archived groups?

Updated at October 25th, 2023

Disabled groups:

  • Deactivation is possible for groups.
  • A deactivated group is hidden from all members and can no longer be used.
  • Only the admin of a group can deactivate it.
  • A deactivated group remains deactivated until the group admin activates it again.
  • Chat and cloud content will remain available once the group is reactivated.

Archived chats:

  • Archiving is possible for chats.
  • An archived chat is only hidden from the member who archived it.
  • Each group member can archive a chat for themselves.
  • An archived chat appears again in the chat overview as soon as a message has been sent to the chat.
  • Chat and cloud content remains available.
