WhatsApp has introduced a new ‘Message Pin’ feature that allows you to pin specific messages in individual chats. This helps highlight important messages that you don’t want to lose track of.
Unlike the existing Chat Pin feature that pins whole conversations, the new Message Pin lets you pin just one message per chat. The pinned message will then appear at the top of that chat with a prominent marker.
And the best part is, the pinned message will stay visible for an entire month before disappearing automatically. So you have enough time to refer back to important details like addresses, dates or phone numbers without worrying about losing them in the chat history.
Pinned messages also won’t get deleted even if you clear the chat history. So it’s more effective than starred messages at preserving crucial details you need to access quickly.
To use this, simply long press a message and tap ‘Pin’ from the pop-up menu. Then select how long you want it pinned for – either 24 hours, 7 days or 30 days.
With Message Pin, WhatsApp is making it much easier to keep important conversations handy for future reference. Try it out to pin details you need regular access to but don’t want to lose track of.
