WhatsApp Pinned Chats Feature Comes to Android Users

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has officially rolled out "Pinned Chats" on its platform that allows users to pin up to three chats to the top of the list. The pinned chats feature was previously spotted in testing earlier this month in WhatsApp beta, but it is now available for all WhatsApp users on Android.

If you want to avail of this function, just tap hold on the chat.

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".

The biggest advantage of the feature is that once you have pinned a chat, it will stay on the top of your chat list, regardless of your conversation or dialogue timings with the concerned individual or group.

In February, WhatsApp announced that it has 200 million monthly active users in India.

iOS users will have to wait a bit longer. The pinned contacts are moved to the top of the chat window for quicker access.

You can also unpin chats by repeating the same process you used to pin them. Users can see any new conversations following the pinned chats. The pin option will appear on the on top. To unpin, long press on the chat, and you'll see the unpin option on top.

While the new feature might be quite simple, we can say that it is very useful, especially when you talk with many people on WhatsApp.

Still, all send and done, the feature will definitely come in handy if you're waiting on an important message or you are simply too busy to manage your chats.
