WhatsApp has rolled out new pin chats feature for all the Android users. Earlier, the pinned chats feature was available only to beta users of WhatsApp.The feature now comes with the stable update.
To start with, just long press on the chats you want to pin.
WhatsApp also released a press statement saying, "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".
WhatsApp has brought out a new feature that lets you pin your chats to the top. Now, with WhatsApp's "pinned chats" feature, it is possible. According to Indian Express, the feature had been previously seen a few weeks ago on Android Beta for testing. Basically, you can pin a post to the top of the page, for everyone to see. With the pinned chats enabled, any other new message will appear after the chats you have pinned. The pin option will appear on the on top. WhatsApp users will need to download the latest WhatsApp update from the Google PlayStore.
Once a chat is pinned, it stays on top of the window, regardless of the recency of the conversation.
The only limitation is that you can tag only up to three chats on the top.
Pinned chats doesn't exactly solve this dilemma, but it does provide an easy way to access frequent chats faster, eliminating the need to scroll through less essential chats. As a result of which you will have a pin icon pop up, next to the delete and mute button. Simply select the unpin icon and the chat will move down the chain of threads, in chronological order.
