You can now pin chats to the top

Do you remember the "Pinned Chat" feature on WhatsApp that we had written about a couple of weeks ago, being available for beta users?

The feature is available only for Android users presently and should make way into iOS soon.

To start with, just long press on the chats you want to pin.

Now, you will not need to scroll down numerous chats to get to your favourite one. In order to use the pinned chats feature, simply tap and hold the chat you would like to pin and a number of icons will appear on the top right hand corner of the screen. 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. The chat will remain at the top no matter what other messages you receive. They can do it by long-pressing the option and disabling the Pin button. The beta version was introduced in the earlier month to Android users. If your WhatsApp app hasn't automatically updated itself, you could head to the Play Store to check for the said update along with the new feature.

The only limitation is that you can tag only up to three chats on the top. Basically, you can pin a post to the top of the page, for everyone to see.

Pinned chats doesn't exactly solve this dilemma, but it does provide an easy way to access frequent chats faster, eliminating the need to scroll through less essential chats. To pin a chat, all you must do is long press the contact, then tap the pin icon on top, your contact will then be moved up to the top of the list.
