WhatsApp Users Can Pin Multiple Messages in Chats

1 Mins read

Calling all chronic scroll-back sufferers! WhatsApp has heard your pleas and addressed a long-standing limitation of its chat functionality. The messaging giant has recently rolled out an update that allows users to pin up to three messages within a single chat, both individual and group conversations, the company confirmed via its official WhatsApp X (formerly Twitter handle). The pinned messages stay at the top of the personal or group chat, as a banner. Tapping on the said banner will take users to the pinned message in the chat.

Previously, users were restricted to pinning just one message at a time. This could be frustrating, especially in group chats where important information or reminders often get buried under an avalanche of new messages.

Here’s the gist of the new feature:

  • Pin up to three messages in a chat for easier access.
  • Pinned messages stay conveniently placed at the top of the chat, right below the contact or group info.
  • Choose the duration for which each message remains pinned – 24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days.
  • By default, pinned messages will stay pinned for 7 days.

Benefits of Multi-message Pinning:

  • Keep Important Information Handy: Never lose track of critical deadlines, meeting details, or important instructions again. Pin them for quick reference.
  • Organize Group Chats: In group conversations, pin essential announcements, rules, or shared links for easy access by all participants.
  • Reduce Repetitive Posts: Avoid the annoyance of repeatedly asking or sharing the same information. Pin it for everyone to see.

How to Pin Messages in WhatsApp:

  1. Open the desired WhatsApp chat (individual or group).
  2. Long-press on the specific message you want to pin.
  3. Tap the three-dot menu in the top right corner of the screen.
  4. Select “Pin” from the menu options.
  5. Choose the duration for which you want the message pinned (24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days).

When multiple messages are pinned within a chat, a banner will appear at the top displaying the number of pinned messages along with a preview of the most recently pinned one.

So, next time you come across a message you need to keep within easy reach, take advantage of WhatsApp’s improved pinning system. This update promises to streamline communication and information flow within your chats, especially in fast-paced group conversations.
