WhatsApp, an instant messaging platform, owned by Meta has unveiled a helpful feature called Pinned Messages which makes it simpler to find important information in your chats. This update is now rolling out worldwide for both individual and group conversations.

Pinned messages allow you to highlight important info which eliminates the need to scroll through lengthy chat histories. Whether it's text, polls, images, or emojis, any message can be pinned for easy access by all chat participants.

Privacy Assurance

The platform reassures users that pinned messages benefit from end-to-end encryption, ensuring the same level of privacy as all other communication on the platform.

Enhancing User Experience

According to the company, this feature is designed to enhance the overall user experience, especially in groups with numerous active members, where important messages can get lost amid a flood of chats.
