The facility of pinning messages on WhatsApp has been launched. This is one of several features added to the messaging platform in the past few weeks. This information is known in the report of technology related website The Verge.
WhatsApp already has the facility to pin conversations. But the facility of pinning a chat for a specific time was not there earlier. From now on that facility has started. With this new update, users will be able to pin specific messages. As a result, finding important information will not be a problem.
Pinned messages on WhatsApp will be highlighted for 24 hours or 30 days. There is also an option for users to unpin if they want. The feature was launched recently. It is reported that it will take some time to reach all users.
The WhatsApp pin message feature works similar to the pinned chat function. That is, when the user pins a particular chat, it will be highlighted and placed at the top. Through this the user can highlight the address, phone number, date and other important information in any conversation.
To pin a chat on WhatsApp, you need to press and hold the specific message for a while and select the pin option. After a certain period of time it will no longer be pinned.
WhatsApp announced the message pin feature in the middle of this year. This feature was initially introduced experimentally in WhatsApp Beta 184.108.40.206 version of Android.
