You can now pin chats to the top


The instant messaging app on Thursday rolled out the Pinned Chats feature for Android allowing users to pin their three most important message conversations on top of all the other chats.

Pinned Chats is quite a neat feature that allows the users to pin their favourite chats on the top.

To start with, just long press on the chats you want to pin. In order to use the pinned chats feature, simply tap and hold the chat you would like to pin and a number of icons will appear on the top right hand corner of the screen.

WhatsApp has launched its latest feature for its app on the Android platform, and it comes in the form of pinned chats.

You might have to update your WhatsApp to access the feature.

This means that regardless of new messages that roll in, those chats will always remain at the top.

Unfortunately, the pin chats feature now support only three chats after which it shows a notification that "You can only pin up to 3 chats" if you try to pin another chat. So in the same manner users can pin up to three chats as mentioned earlier. Then they can tap the pin icon at the top of the screen. Users can see any new conversations following the pinned chats. But you are free to pin individual chats or even group chats. The major benefit of this feature is that you will not need to scroll through a list of chats to message your family members or friends. Once you select, the concerned chat will move down to its regular place in the list of chats.
