New WhatsApp update makes it easier to keep up with important chats

WhatsApp is set to add a new feature to make it easier to keep an eye on important chats and to ignore the more boring ones. The app owned by facebook is adding this new feature so that people can pin certain conversations to the top of their list and move less important conversations to the bottom even if the people in those chats are incessantly speaking.

The app owned by Facebook is adding this new feature so that people can pin certain conversations to the top of their list and move less important conversations to the bottom even if the people in those chats are incessantly speaking.

The update is one of a huge range of features that WhatsApp is introducing to try and encourage group chats and other uses for the app. The new feature works by letting people press and hold on a chat, this will then bring up a pin option alongside the delete and mute features that have already been added to the app. If you press the pin button the chat will always stay at the top of the list of conversations - making it much easier to find and harder to dismiss. But, only three chats can be pinned to the top of the list but they can be swapped around at any point to what the user wants.

The pin update has only been found in beta versions of the app but, the update is expected to roll out in a
software update soon and will probably be added to both iOS and Android versions of the app.
