WhatsApp Introduces Multi-Message Pinning Feature for Chats

    In December, WhatsApp introduced a useful feature allowing users to pin important messages in their chats. However, the catch was that you could only pin one message at a time. Now, things are changing! Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and WhatsApp boss Will Cathcart have exciting news. They’ve announced that users can now pin up to three messages in both individual and group chats.

    You can pin various types of messages – text, pictures, even polls! To pin a message, simply hold it down, tap “Pin” from the menu, and choose the duration you want it to stay there. By default, it remains pinned for seven days, but you can also select 24 hours or 30 days. After that period, if you haven’t removed it, it will automatically unpin itself.

    What’s more, when you tap on a pinned message, you’ll jump straight to it in the chat.

    In group chats, admins can decide if members can stick messages. And when a message gets stuck, everyone in the group gets a heads-up. But, here’s the catch: if you join a group after a message is stuck, you won’t see it. Plus, if you’ve deleted the message or don’t have the chat history, it won’t show up for you either.
