Down with scrolling...

Have you ever gone to text a mate you haven't spoken to in a while and found yourself scrolling through around six million Whatsapp conversations in order to find the person you're looking for? Those days are over.

The messaging app is rolling out a new feature which will allow users to 'pin' their favourite or most used conversations at the top of their Whatsapp profiles. 

Whatsapp says:

"With pinned chats, you never have to worry about scrolling through the long list of conversations to text your family members or your best friend.

“Users can now pin up to three of the most important group or individual chats to the top of their chat list for easy access – simply tap and hold a chat, and then tap the pin icon at the top of your screen.” 

Handy out. The update will also allow us to ignore muted conversations so we will no longer be bothered by the musings of that old club or sports team we left about four years ago but haven't plucked up the courage to leave yet.

Take a hint, guys.
