Last February, WhatsApp was able to announce that it was working on a new feature allowing certain channels to be pinned for easier access. If access to this new feature had remained limited to developers, it is now joining the Google Play beta program for approved users. They can therefore use this new function while waiting for its public accessibility in a future update.

This update therefore essentially allows you to pin up to two channels to the top of the list, in order to quickly access them as soon as you open the “ News » from WhatsApp. As a reminder, this tab appeared more than a year ago to compete with Telegram and Twitter by offering current information and updates from various companies, media, and public figures. These channels actually act as a content aggregator on specific themes. Since then, the function “ News » has been reviewed and corrected many times by Meta, notably last May when the entire application interface has been completely redesigned.

Accessible only to WhatsApp beta update testers

Currently, in the version of WhatsApp accessible to the general public, it is necessary to scroll down to access a channel considered important by the user. This mechanism can be particularly tiring, especially for those who follow a number of channels on the application. The update therefore aims to facilitate the user's approach in daily use, in order to favor the content that they wish to follow as a priority.

For information, this program is not accessible to everyone: on Google Play, WhatsApp indicates that “ the WhatsApp application testing program has reached the maximum number of testers who can participate “. Users who do not have access to WhatsApp beta updates will therefore need to be patient. The update is expected to become public in the coming weeks.
