Now you can pin chats on WhatsApp for Android

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

Facebook-owned popular social messaging app WhatsApp has finally rolled out it's much awaited "pinned chats" feature for all its Android users. The feature has now found its way to official builds and allows users to pin up to three contacts.

To pin an app, you will need to long press the chat you wish to pin and select the option from the list.

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.

WhatsApp's pinned chats tool initially appeared in its beta avatar in early May.

Sadly, this new pin chat feature allows only pinning three chats. According to Indian Express, the feature had been previously seen a few weeks ago on Android Beta for testing.

iOS users will have to wait a bit longer. The pin option will appear on the on top.

You can also unpin chats by repeating the same process you used to pin them. 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. That's not it, people have also suggested as to what feature they would like to see next on WhatsApp. A notification will be sent once three chats are pinned to say you can't pin anymore. This comes in as a handy tool when you have too many chats to scroll down and look for a specific piece of information. Simply select the unpin icon and the chat will move down the chain of threads, in chronological order.
