Do you often find yourself searching for important text messages on your Android device? Maybe you have archived some messages and now can’t remember where they are.

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In this tutorial, we will show you how to find archived texts on Android.

Step 1: Open the Messaging App

If you have a default messaging app on your Android device, open it. If not, download a messaging app from the Play Store that suits your needs.

Step 2: Access the Menu

Once you are in the messaging app, look for the menu icon. It is usually represented by three horizontal lines or dots in the top right or left corner of the screen. Tap on it to access the menu options.

Step 3: Select Archived Messages

In the menu options, look for an option called “Archived Messages” or something similar. This option is usually located under “Settings” or “More”. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: View Archived Texts

After selecting “Archived Messages”, you will be directed to a new screen displaying all your archived texts. Take a moment to browse through them and locate the specific text message(s) you are looking for.


  • Use Search: If you have numerous archived messages and can’t find what you’re looking for manually, use the search bar provided in the archived messages section. Enter keywords related to the text message(s) you want to locate and let Android do the work for you.
  • Unarchive Messages: Once you have found the desired text message(s), select it/them by long-pressing on the message(s) and look for an option to “Unarchive” or “Move to Inbox”. Tap on it to unarchive the message(s) and bring them back to your regular messaging inbox.

With these simple steps, you can easily find and access your archived texts on Android. Remember, archiving messages is a great way to declutter your messaging app without losing important conversations. Happy searching!
