WhatsApp pinned chats now available for Android users

Once rolled out in the next update, users will be able to pin their favourite and most important conversations to the top of their WhatsApp profiles. However, it must be noted that this feature has only been made available to Android devices for now.

Users of Whatsapp can also see other options including Mute, Archive and Delete as well, by long-pressing a chat.

In order to pin a chat on WhatsApp is very easy as you will just need to go to the main "Chats" page of the application, tap and hold the chat that you want to pin and select the "Pin" button that's located on the top side of the window. However, please note that the new feature is, as of now only available for Android users.

iOS users will have to wait a bit longer.

The new feature would allow users to have three of their favorite chats to stay on top of the Chats tab.

This means that regardless of new messages that roll in, those chats will always remain at the top. Once you have pinned a conversation in WhatsApp, it will come right on top. Then they can tap the pin icon at the top of the screen. Choose this and the chat will move down the chain of threads.

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.

People have been talking about the new Pinned feature and have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Well, WhatsApp is definitely late in introducing the new feature, considering we have been using "Pinned" feature on platforms like Telegram, YouTube, and Twitter. This comes in as a handy tool when you have too many chats to scroll down and look for a specific piece of information.
