WhatsApp users will soon be able to pin messages within a conversation

According to Wabetainfo, Whatsapp is currently planning to introduce a feature through which users will be able to pin certain messages during a conversation, either in a group setting or one-on-one.

At the start of February, it was revealed that WhatsApp will start working on a feature that will enable its users to pin messages during a conversation. As a result, the user will be able to access them easily or pin messages carrying important reminders. The developers have come a long way, and a preview has also been shared by the app, showing how exactly the upcoming feature will function and how pin messages will be shown at the top of the screen.

Based on the screenshot posted by Wabetainfo, it can be seen that a certain text message was pinned in a chat. If a user wants to use the feature, they can simply act by selecting the targeted messages and tapping on the pin icon displayed in chat options. After the icon has been tapped, the user will now be able to view the pinned message at the top of the chat so it can be accessed instantly whenever the user wants to.

It is believed that the ability to pin a message will turn out to be very useful, as not only can the message be used as a reminder, but it can even highlight any important part of the conversation during a group discussion. As a large number of group messages might result in important information getting skipped, the user can simply put a pin on any such message so anyone who is a part of the group will be able to view the message.

However, what needs to be focused on is that the feature is still in the development stage and might take some time before it gets released globally. Though no official release date has been shared by WhatsApp as to when the new feature will be rolled out, it can be expected that the beta version will soon be available.
