Please, add an option to switch it off. This is really annoying. The workaround is terrible if your chats' friends only a few. I using Official Telegram Android App. Simple "X"/"Close" button would be nice.
honestly this is the worst feature i've ever seen in any app EVER. i hate accumulating chats so i keep the important ones archived and delete all the rest and now i'm obligated to have useless chats just to make ir organized, which defeats the whole purpose of organizing!!!!!!!
