WHATSAPP is making it a whole lot easier to keep important group messages where everyone can see them.
The popular app is working on yet another new feature to take groups to a new level.
According to a leaked screenshot, it looks like you will soon be able to pin messages for the first time.
It's a small but potentially significant change for anyone participating in groups on WhatsApp.
For example, details of an important family event could be pinned up top for all to see in a group with your relatives.
Or it could be used in a work group for colleagues so they're aware of specific details.

"Thanks to pinned messages, we can make them easily accessible to everyone in the conversation and people stay always focused on what is really important," the site says.
"The ability to pin messages within chats and groups is under development and it will be released in a future update of the app."
As ever with beta testing, it's very early days and WhatsApp bosses may decide not to roll it out to the wider public.
