Now you can pin chats on WhatsApp for Android

Now you can pin chats on WhatsApp for Android

With this new feature, users of the instant messaging app are allowed to select a conversation and pin it to the top of their chats, meaning the said chat will always be at the top when the WhatsApp app is opened.

Now, you will not need to scroll down numerous chats to get to your favourite one. However, please note that the new feature is, as of now only available for Android users. To pin a chat, all you must do is long press the contact, then tap the pin icon on top, your contact will then be moved up to the top of the list.

The new feature is hassle free and very simple to use. For those who are unfamiliar or might have missed the news, basically what this does is that it allows users to pin up to three chats to the top of the list.

Once a chat is pinned, it stays on top of the window, regardless of the recency of the conversation. You are also able to unpin the chat just as easily, and this can be done by once again tapping and holding the chat, which will give you a number of options. Once you select the option, your chat will move right on top. So in the same manner users can pin up to three chats as mentioned earlier. A notification will be sent once three chats are pinned to say you can't pin anymore.

People have been talking about the new Pinned feature and have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.

WhatsApp has been making a lot of changes to its platform and at the same time has been adding new features to deliver better user experience.
