Tips about the pin option

You can pin up to three messages coming out of three friends. It is a slightly different procedure to pin a message on Android smartphones and iPhones. If you haven't installed WhatsApp yet but like this option and find it helpful, you can download and install it free from the Play Store on Android or Apple store on iPhone. As WhatsApp allows you to chat in groups with many other people, you can also pin the messages in the group conversation.

Pin messages on Android

You should know a few things to pin a chat on Android smartphones. You can pin up to three group or individual chats that you consider the most important. This allows you easier access to those conversations.

To pin a chat, you need to press and hold it and then click on the pin icon at the top of the screen. Once you have pinned the conversation, the right corner will show a little mark. WhatsApp allows you to pin and unpin conversations as well. So, when you unpin it, the mark will disappear. Aside from this option, you can mute or archive the conversation by a long hold on the chat.

Pin chat on iPhone

Here is what you need to do to pin a chat on your iPhone. When you open WhatsApp, go to the list of conversations. Next, you need to slide over the conversation you want to pin. Slide over it, going from the screen's left to the right side. You will see the pin option and the option to mark the message as unread. Click on the pin option. You will now have your chat pinned at the top of the conversation list and notice a little pin mark in the right corner of the frame for a particular chat.

You can pin up to the three conversations on the iPhone, the same as on the Android smartphone. To unpin conversations, the procedure is the same. Press and slide over the conversation. When an icon appears on the left side, just click on the unpin. That is it.

Pe message in the group chat

If you have a group on WhatsApp or are an admin of it, you probably need a way to approach all of your members. So, hold on a bit longer when you write a specific message and then click on the pin option. This way, all of the members in your group will see the message when they get to the conversation space.

The pin feature is essential when you have a lot of members and want all of them to see some vital information, group rules, or anything else you think your members should read. This option allows you to have all your members read the message at least once.

Group chats include many other features, such as searching through the messages without reading all the written content, inviting by the link, searching for people in the group, searching for documents and shared links, and many others.
