WhatsApp Enhances Message Pinning Feature: A Complete Guide

In a recent update, WhatsApp has introduced an enhanced message pinning feature, allowing users to pin up to three messages in individual chats. Previously, users were limited to pinning just one message at a time in conversations with either contacts or groups. Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, and Will Cathcart, the head of WhatsApp, separately announced this feature on their respective WhatsApp channels. With this new capability, users can now pin various types of messages, including text, images, and polls.

Once pinned, these messages remain prominently displayed at the top of the chat as banners for durations of 24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days. Users have the flexibility to unpin messages at any time, either manually or automatically. If left unpinned manually, messages will automatically unpin after the specified duration expires. If you’re interested in utilizing this feature to pin multiple messages in a chat, follow the step-by-step guide below:

Open the WhatsApp application on your device and navigate to the chat where you want to pin messages.

Locate the message you wish to pin and press and hold on it until the contextual menu appears.

From the menu that appears, select the “Pin” option.

You will then be prompted to choose the duration for which you want to pin the message. You can choose from options such as 24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days, depending on your preference.

Once you’ve selected the duration, the message will be pinned to the top of the chat as a banner.

Repeat the same process for up to two additional messages that you wish to pin in the same chat.

To unpin a message manually before the specified duration expires, simply press and hold on the pinned message and select the “Unpin” option from the menu.

If you prefer to let messages automatically unpin after the specified duration, you can leave them pinned without taking any action.

By following these steps, you can take full advantage of WhatsApp’s enhanced message pinning feature to keep important messages easily accessible in your chats. Whether you’re organizing group discussions, planning events, or simply want to highlight key information, pinning messages can help you stay organized and efficient in your communication.
