WhatsApp reveal new 'pin' feature

WhatsApp has launched its latest feature for its app on the Android platform, and it comes in the form of pinned chats.

WhatsApp's "pinned chat" feature lets you pin their favourite chats on the top of the app. Users can pin up to three chats on WhatsApp and the feature works both for the group chats and individual chats.

WhatsApp has finally introduced the new pin chats feature for all Android users, which was earlier this month only available to Android beta users of the messaging app.

WhatsApp also released a press statement saying, "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". The feature is pretty simple to use, just like many other features on WhatsApp. With the new feature, WhatsApp users can pin up to three contacts on top of rest of the conversations.

China says hopes new South Korean government will correct problems
South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Wednesday said that there was a "high possibility" of a conflict with North Korea. It has also regularly threatened South Korea and Japan of strikes for colluding with the United States.

Basically, users can go to the chat section and simply tap and hold a chat. Now, with WhatsApp's "pinned chats" feature, it is possible. The pin option will appear on the on top. To unpin, long press on the chat, and you'll see the unpin option on top. Only this time, select the chats you want to unpin.

Nonetheless, with this new feature, WatsApp is helping its users keep their most important messages in sight.

As for iOS users, it seems that the feature isn't live for you guys yet so we guess you'll just have to wait, but we reckon it probably shouldn't be too long before the update finds its way to you.
