Close a chat with someone

Status app is currently in beta stage
The Status app is currently in beta. This means the app is still undergoing active development, and certain features described in this document may function differently or be unavailable in the app.

You may think about closing your chat with someone if you don't talk to this person often, or you want to tidy up your chat list.

  • You can close a direct message chat (or DM, for short) with someone in your chat list, but you can't close a group chat.
  • Closing a chat doesn't delete the messages or your contact.
  • If this person sends you a new message, the chat reappears on your chat list.
