Whatsapp released yet another update recently. The update lets people in prioritizing some chats over others in their chat windows. Termed as "Pin Feature," this addition will help people to avoid other chats whenever they open the app.
WhatsApp in a press statement 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
Pin Chat Feature
This pin chat will be helpful to users from distracting. This feature will enable users to focus only on the important chats they have saving them for message-filled groups or from random numbers.The feature will act like a shortlisted or special feature in smartphones. The pinned chats will stay on top no matter what even when you get a message from others.
It is similar to the pin feature on Youtube where the uploaders can pin their favorite comments to the top.
The pinned feature is simple to use and you can pin any chat as follows:
- Long press any chat
- On the top of the window, you can see Pin option to the left side of delete option
- That's all! You chat will be pinned to the top
- The recently pinned chat will always go to the top
Looks like Whatsapp is listening to users and adding the features we all desired. The pin feature was expected before and the users are just asking for one last feature that is "UNSEND." This feature may save a lot of people from landing into problems and WhatsApp confirmed that they are working on it too. While we wait for that, What do you think about the Pin feature? Is it useful?
