WhatsApp is making it easier for people to keep their most important messages in sight. 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.
“With pinned chats, you never have to worry about scrolling through the long list of conversations to text your family members or your best friend. Users can now pin up to three of the most important group or individual chats to the top of their chat list for easy access — simply tap and hold a chat, and then tap the pin icon at the top of your screen, “WhatsApp said in a press release.
One of the biggest highlights of the new Pin feature is that you once pin a chat, it will remain on the top of your chat list, irrespective of your dialogue or conversation timings with the individual or group concerned. Users will be able to see any new chats or conversations following the pinned chats. You can also un-pin WhatsApp chats whenever you please, by long pressing the option, and disabling the Pin button.
So how does this feature work? Learn here.
- Go to WhatsApp.
- Tap hold on the chat you want to pin.
- You can pin three messages at a time.
- To unpin, once again long press the conversation.
This can prove to be an important update for those who have their phones constantly being bombarded by WhatsApp messages and they often lose the track of their messages amidst the numerous of messages.
