What Does Pinning Messages on Whatsapp Do?

Pinning some contacts or chats at the top of your WhatsApp window allows you quickly make a reference to these most-message contacts without the need to search for them in the ocean of messages. This is a good feature in Whatsapp but has one limitation, i.e. Whatsapp only allows you to pin a maximum of 3 chats by default, to do more than that, you will need to unpin of the pinned chats.

Still, this is a good feature to keep your Mom, wife, girlfriend, clients, boss, business partners or friend’s chat at the top of the chat window. Another nice thing is that this feature works for all chats i.e. you can pin individuals, group chats and broadcast lists. Alternatively, Telegram allows you to pin as many chats as you want.

Pin More than 3 Chats on Whatsapp Trick Explained

The trick is that archived chats are chats that you are not interacting with, for now, so, when you moved a chat to archive, you will not receive a notification when the person messaged you but the messages are still in that chatbox, not deleted. So, at the time you moved one of the pinned chats to archive, WhatsApp understands that you are not chatting will them for now (not an active chat), hence the opportunity of quickly pinning another contact, and once you reverse the archive quickly, no error will be taken.
