The popular social media application, Whatsapp allegedly found testing various new features in its latest beta version. There are many additional features introduced by its developers that aim improvising user experience of the stakeholders. These features are being tested in the beta version currently, we can hope that it’ll be launched soon to the stable version.
The latest WhatsApp beta comes highlighting the hot new feature that allows users to pin the chats with their favourite contacts on top. The feature is now found on WhatsApp beta for Android versions 2.17.162 or 2.17.163. To use this feature you can press on the individual/group chat you want to pin and then just tap the Pin symbol from the top bar. The pinned chat can be found on the top of the chat list. You can also modify the pin by tapping on it to Delete, Mute, and Archive the chats.
Whatsapp has restricted the maximum number of pins to three so that pinning more than 3 chats will warn you ‘You can only pin up to 3 chats’. The pinned chat will be showed in the top of all chat’s irrespective of conversation time with any person or group. If you’re not interested in pinning a chat, unpin that chat by long pressing the option, and disabling the Pin button.
The feature is now available only for the beta users as mentioned above, if you’re so interested to use the feature right now, just sign up for WhatsApp beta on Google Play from your Android phone.
