New 'pinned chats' feature rolls on WhatsApp for Android

Instant Messaging service WhatsApp has introduced a new feature to its platform.

As things now are, the app is now being rolled out to Android users and this update should be available to download within the next few days. Unpinning a chat is just as easy, just long press on the contact again and unpin by tapping the pin icon on top. "Users can now pin up to three of the most important group or individual chats to the top of their chat list for easy access - simply tap and hold a chat, and then tap the pin icon at the top of your screen", the company mentioned in a press note.

'Very good' chance for Israel-Palestine peace
According to former White House official Dennis Ross, the gap between Israelis and Palestinians "has probably never been greater". And one of Trump's promises - moving the us embassy to Jerusalem - could thwart the peace process.

WhatsApp's pinned chats tool initially appeared in its beta avatar in early May. However, there are some people on user's contacts list who are important to them and want their chats to stay on top, regardless of new messages from others. They can do it by long-pressing the option and disabling the Pin button. The new feature is just like the "pin post" feature on a Facebook page if you might have ever operated one. If your WhatsApp app hasn't automatically updated itself, you could head to the Play Store to check for the said update along with the new feature. Users can see any new conversations following the pinned chats. This comes in as a handy tool when you have too many chats to scroll down and look for a specific piece of information. A notification will be sent once three chats are pinned to say you can't pin anymore. Simply select the unpin icon and the chat will move down the chain of threads, in chronological order. The major benefit of this feature is that you will not need to scroll through a list of chats to message your family members or friends.
