WhatsApp will let you pin up to three messages in a chat

WhatsApp has made it easier for users to pin important messages in chats for quick access to information. According to Meta Chief Mark Zuckerberg, from the previous pinned messages feature, users could pin up to three messages from within a conversation.

WhatsApp will let users pin not only messages, but also media or polls, which can stay at the top of the chat for 24 hours, 7 days or an entire month. If one message is pinned, it will appear as a chat banner, but if there are more than one, the banner will display how many messages are pinned, with the most recent appearing at the top.

To pin messages, users simply need to press and hold the message and select ‘Pin’ from the displayed drop-down options, as well as select the period for which the message needs to be pinned. Messages can be unpinned in the same way.
