- You can pin your favourite chat on top of the conversations.
Those who have numerous groups that are active on WhatsApp, it is difficult to keep hold of that one particular group that matters the most. Now, WhatsApp users can pin a conversation on top of the Chats tab.
Fist spotted by Android Police, the feature is being tested for Android users. The WhatsApp beta version 2.17.162 or 163 will be adding what is known as pinned chats. According to the report, users can tap and hold onto any chat. Users will then see a pin symbol. Other options like delete, Mute and Archive will also be seen alongside Pin. They can pin up to three chats.
Users will find the pinned chat on top, followed by all others. It also gives the option to unpin a chat group. The version could be rolled out when out of beta and in a stable form.
One of the highly anticipated features of WhatsApp is the ability to revoke a message. Yes, for all those times when you have regretted sending a message and only wished if you could retract it, this feature would be a great relief. The beta version reportedly includes testing the revoke feature that allows users to delete a sent message within 5 minutes. It should be noted that features being tested in the beta mode are even scrapped, and only a few may see the day of light.
