    Pin Chats: Pin chats is a very cool feature that I don’t see many people take advantage of the sole purpose is to let a chat stay above all other chat which in most cases I use for a group is actively participating.

    Here is how you go about it, lunch Whatsaap and locate the group you want to pin, hold down on it a pop of a pin will show on the top bar click it and bang the group will on top as long as you want it to unpin it you simply reduce the same process.


    Whatsapp TIPS, TRICKS & HACKS 9

    Star messages in chats: just like pin chat this is also a cool feature I don’t often see people use. sometimes when you’re looking for important information on your previous chat you will have to scroll and scroll through millions of text you’ve sent but what you could actually do to get the information easily is to star all important messages whenever it’s been sent to you.

    Here is how you go about it, hold down the text and you get a star icon on the top menu bar click it.


    this will alert WhatsApp to separate this chat from others, to get back the chat when you need it just hold down on the profile of the information sender scroll down and click on starred messages open and you will get all the messages there, you repeat the same process if you want the message unscarred.
