WhatsApp rolls out 'pinned chats' feature on Android

Well, if this is the case then you'll be pleased to know that the app is introducing pinned chats that will allow you to pin up to three contacts and groups to the top of your WhatsApp conversation list. The company has rolled out "Pinned Chats" which as the name implies, will allow you to pin chats special to you, to the top of the chats window.

According to WhatsApp, "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.

You might have to update your WhatsApp to access the feature.

WhatsApp is a very popular application with over 1.2 billion monthly active users. WhatsApp has not yet talked about rolling it out for iOS users. Unfortunately, WhatsApp has placed a 3-chat restriction on the feature, so users will have to be selective about which chats they find the most important. They can do it by long-pressing the option and disabling the Pin button. You can pin a maximum of three chats one by one. To unpin, long press on the chat, and you'll see the unpin option on top. Choose this and the chat will move down the chain of threads.

And if you later change your mind and want to unpin the chat, you need to follow the same steps.

The only limitation is that you can tag only up to three chats on the top.
