WhatsApp introduced the new pin chats feature for all Android users. The pin chat feature in WhatsApp allows
users to pin favourite chats on top of the Chats tab. With the new feature, WhatsApp users can pin up to three
contacts on top of rest of the conversations.
According to Whatsapp announcement statement on pin features;
"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. Users can now pin
up to three of the most important group or individual
chats to the top of their chat list for easy access --
simply tap and hold a chat, and then tap the pin icon at
the top of your screen," said WhatsApp in a statement
announcing the Pin feature for Android.
Unfortunately, the pin chats feature currently support
only three chats after which it shows a notification that
'You can only pin up to 3 chats' if you try to pin another
One of the biggest highlights of the new Pin feature is that you once pin a chat, it will remain on the top of your chat list, irrespective of your dialogue or
conversation timings with the individual or group concerned.
Users will be able to see any new chats or conversations following the pinned chats. You can also un-pin WhatsApp
chats whenever you please, by long pressing the option, and disabling the Pin button.
