  • WhatsApp reveal new 'pin' feature

The instant messaging app on Thursday rolled out the Pinned Chats feature for Android allowing users to pin their three most important message conversations on top of all the other chats.

WhatsApp's latest update is set to include a feature that will make priotising your conversations so much easier. Simply select the chats you want to pin (up to 3!) and tap the pin icon.

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". In order to use the pinned chats feature, simply tap and hold the chat you would like to pin and a number of icons will appear on the top right hand corner of the screen.

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. Besides the Pin option, WhatsApp users can see other options like Delete, Mute, and Archive. Pick the pin option, and the chat will move to the very top of your conversation list. Choose this and the chat will move down automatically.

People have been talking about the new Pinned feature and have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Given that most people are active in about 74 different WhatsApp groups, it's very likely that you prioritise one friend/group over another.

Well, pinning a chat on the app is really simple.
