WhatsApp reveal new 'pin' feature

Prioritise what conversations you see first

WhatsApp has launched a new feature to help users manage their accounts that bit better. 

Once rolled out in the next update, users will be able to pin their favourite and most important conversations to the top of their WhatsApp profiles. This will prioritise what messages are seen first. 

It will also help ignore muted conversations. 

“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,” says WhatsApp. “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.” 

WhatsApp has started to roll the feature out to Android users, with the iOS version of the update due to follow thereafter.
