WhatsApp Pinned Chats Feature Now Available for Android Users

While WhatsApp is constantly working on bringing new features to its users, the popular messaging service provider has finally added the new pinned chats feature for Android devices.

As things now are, the app is now being rolled out to Android users and this update should be available to download within the next few days.

To pin an app, you will need to long press the chat you wish to pin and select the option from the list.

WhatsApp announced the development via a statement which 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 need to simply tap and hold a chat, and then tap the pin icon at the top of their WhatsApp screen. WhatsApp users can pin up to three contacts on top with the new feature.

Unfortunately, the pin chats feature now support only three chats after which it shows a notification that "You can only pin up to 3 chats" if you try to pin another chat. At the moment, users are allowed to pin up to three chats, and these can be any chats, be it individual or group chats. The pin option will appear on the on top.

The update is around 8.44 MB in size and you can download it through the Google Play Store.

The only limitation is that you can tag only up to three chats on the top. Users can see any new conversations following the pinned chats. Simply select the unpin icon and the chat will move down the chain of threads, in chronological order.

The pinned chat feature is now available only on the Android platform.
