Then coming to the other new feature ‘Multiple Pinned Messages’, this will help the admins of a group or a person chatting privately pin all the multiple important messages on the chat. With the help of a button that is present on the top right corner of the chat section, users can tap to see all the pinned messages on a separate screen.

Talking about ‘Playlists’ feature, users can now send multiple songs at the same time to their contacts as a playlist. Whenever users select multiple audio files to share, it will automatically convert into a playlist.

Lastly, there is another feature called ‘Channel Post Stats’ added. This feature is specially made in mind keeping the needs of admins of groups. With the help of this feature, admins can monitor the performance of specific messages and see how many views and number of times the message was forwarded to other channels.
