WhatsApp Pinned Chats Feature Comes to Android

WhatsApp brings pinned chats to Android Here's how to use the feature

The Facebook-owned instant messaging platform has earlier this month hinted that they will be adding the "Pinned chat" feature to its app.

The new feature, initially available to Beta users, lets users keep important chats on top. The same mechanism has been put into place here, where you can pin a chat to the top and visit it later for whatever reasons you might have.

"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 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. The feature is pretty simple to use, just like many other features on WhatsApp.

Basically, users can go to the chat section and simply tap and hold a chat.

Apart from Pin option, WhatsApp users can also see other options such as Delete, Mute, and Archive as well, which appears on long-pressing a chat. Only this time, select the chats you want to unpin.
