WhatsApp starts rolling out Pinned Chat feature to Android users

Just days after we reported that WhatsApp was beta testing a new feature which allowed users to pin chats at the top to make it easier to access the chats.


WhatsApp has started rolling out the Pin Chats features to its WhatsApp messenger app for Android. The feature allows users to pin up to three chats to the top of the chat list, making it easy to access. Users can pin both individual and group chats. The feature is expected to reach all Android users in the next few days.

To pin a chat, users need to only tap and hold the required chat. The Pin icon would then appear next to the delete, mute and archive option. Users then need to tap the pin icon to move the chat to the top. Users can unpin the chat by following the same procedure.

Commenting about the new feature, WhatsApp said, “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. Users can now pin up to three of the most important group or individual chats to the top of their chat list for easy access — simply tap and hold a chat, and then tap the pin icon at the top of your screen.
