WhatsApp's newest feature will make it easier to prioritise important conversations

WhatsApp's newest feature will make it easier to prioritise important conversations

WhatsApp had rolled out the pin chats feature to Beta users for Android earlier this month. The WhatsApp pin chat feature allows users to pin favorite chats on top of the Chats tab. Simply select the chats you want to pin and tap the icon.

Besides, WhatsApp has commented, "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's "pinned chat" feature lets you pin their favourite chats on the top of the app. Users can pin up to three chats on WhatsApp and the feature works both for the group chats and individual chats.

Sadly, this new pin chat feature allows only pinning three chats. Once the user pins any three messages, these messages will come on top in spite of other messages pouring in. WhatsApp has not yet talked about rolling it out for iOS users.

Given that most people are active in about 74 different WhatsApp groups, it's very likely that you prioritise one friend/group over another. The chat will remain at the top no matter what other messages you receive. Users can see any new conversations following the pinned 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.

It's always a pain having to scroll through the long list of conversations when you're just looking for your bestie or your mum. That's not it, people have also suggested as to what feature they would like to see next on WhatsApp.
