WhatsApp is adding the ability to pin a message to the top of your chats for up to 30 days. Meta says that the feature, which its mobile Facebook Messenger app already has, is rolling out to users now, so not everyone will see it right away.
Meta says to do so, users will need to long-press on a message and tap “Pin.” Seven days is the default duration for a pin, but users can choose to change that to either 24 hours or 30 days. Any message can be pinned, so if you want to pin a poll, a picture, or even a video, you can. Group chat admins can make a pin visible only to other admins, too.
Every messaging app should have this feature.
This feature is begging to be added to all direct messaging…
