WhatsApp has introduced the ability to pin chats within one-on-one and group conversations. 

The company said users can pin all kinds of conversations, including text, polls, images and emojis. However, users can pin only one chat at a time.

The Meta-owned chat app mentioned that users can pin a chat by long-pressing on a conversation and selecting “Pin” from the menu. You can select 24 hours, 7 days (which is the default option) and 30 days.

The company said that in groups, admins can choose if just admins or members would be able to pin a message.

WhatsApp’s competitors Telegram and iMessage already offer a pin message option for users in both individual and group chats.

Last week, WhatsApp rolled out the ability to send disappearing voice messages that could only be viewed once by the receiver
