Why pin chats on WhatsApp?

WhatsApp is booming in popularity – around two billion people use the app every month.

And if you’re constantly chatting on WhatsApp, it’s easy to lose track of the most important conversations on the app.

Busy group chats full of work pals or that stag/hen night can bury a partner or family member low down in your app.

But it’s possible to permanently pin any chat to the top of your feed.

It makes it much easier to find the most important chats in your life – especially if you have loads clogging up your feed.

The feature works for both one-on-one conversations and group chats.
