Still on creativity and updates of creative features from the world’s most used app, if I am not mistaken, whatsapp has introduced a new feature to their ever increasing list of features, and you’re surely going to like this one.
Have you ever loved a particular chat on whatsapp that you wished you could pin it to the top of all other chats, so you would have access to it at all times. If you haven’t witnessed that, I have, and whatsapp seem to miraculously know some of the things we want to see as they have made provisions for this feature too.
The feature has been been added to the WhatsApp beta, very soon it will begin roll out to normal WhatsApp.
WhatsApp beta version 2.17.162 (and now 163) helps you solve that problem by adding the Pin Chat feature. The Pinned chats feature allow you to Pin chats and it appears at the top of the list regardless of the recency of the last message compared to other chats.
How to Pin Chat?
Tap and hold on any chat and you’ll get a new pin icon in the action bar next to the delete, mute, and archive functions.
For now, only 3 chats can be pin after which get a small toast notification message saying you can’t pin more.
