WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature soon. The new WhatsApp update allows users to pin their favourite conversations to the top to the chats tab. In other words, you will not have to go through hundreds of chat threads once this feature is active.
Enabled on Android Beta
Currently, it is enabled in the latest version of Android beta, but the feature is being tested and is expected to roll out to stable versions of the app soon. The facebook-owned app had also enabled this feature earlier on it platform as well. The company which has already been working on many features at the same time is testing to roll out this new feature on Android version phones.
Here’s how to pin the post
It was first spotted by the Android Police and if you are running WhatsApp beta for Android versions 2.17.162 or 2.17.163, you will able to use this option. If you want to pin the individual post to the top, just press it and choose the pin symbol from the top bar. The latest update also brings other options such as Delete, Mute, and Archive as well, alongside Pin.
You can only pin up to 3 chats
The pin chat will always remain top on your chat list even if you have more recent WhatsApp conversations with other individuals and groups. Whatsapp allows a user to pin a maximum of three chats after that it pops a notification ‘You can only pin up to 3 chats’. The benefit of this update is that it reduces the burden of scrolling the long chat list for the users.
Unpin the chat conversation
Users can also unpin WhatsApp chats whenever they want by long pressing the option, and disabling the Pin button. The feature has not been rolled out yet as mentioned. If you are unable to use this feature, just sign up for Whatsapp beta on Google Play and enjoy the new feature. You can also download this feature from APK Mirror.
