We have to remind you that "pinned chats" feature has been added to the WhatsApp BETA version for quite a while, but it seems that the developers have finally decided that the feature can be added to the latest STABLE version of WhatsApp, which can be downloaded right now to your smartphone.

As has generally been the norm for WhatsApp, the latest update will be rolled out on Android first before following on IOS at a later date.

Speaking about the "pinned chats" feature, it makes easier for people to stay on top of the messages that matter the most. 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. The new feature is just like the "pin post" feature on a Facebook page if you might have ever operated one. Only this time, select the chats you want to unpin.

Sadly, this new pin chat feature allows only pinning three chats. The pin option will appear on the on top. You can have a maximum of 3 chats pinned.

US will tighten screws on North Korea, says Nikki Haley
The UN Security Council has unanimously condemned North Korea's latest missile test and warned of new sanctions, BBC reports. No draft resolution was circulated to the full council, but Haley said the United States was working with China on a text.


"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". Once you select, the concerned chat will move down to its regular place in the list of chats.

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

Still, all send and done, the feature will definitely come in handy if you're waiting on an important message or you are simply too busy to manage your chats.
