The most awaited ‘pinned chat’ features of Whatsapp are now available for Android users. Earlier this month, Whatsapp launched the update for its Android Beta Users. This feature allows the user to pin their favorite chats on Whatsapp on top of the chat tab. This feature will allow the Android users to pin up to three contacts on top of their chat heads.
“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,” said a spokesperson of WhatsApp in a statement while announcing the Pin feature for Android.
Sadly the limitation limits the number of selection to 3 posts which the user gets a notification ‘You can only pin up to 3 chats’.
Beside the Pin option, the WhatsApp android users also get access to some other options such as Delete, Mute, & Archive. These options appear when you long press a chat.
The best part is that once you pin the chat it remains on top of the chat heads despite your communication with other contacts. You can at any given time unpin any contact if you feel so. All you need to do is long press the option and disable the PIN button.
