Message your pins

Until now, we could send a pin to another user who shares a common interest, and then respond to email notifications. Pinterest messaging helps you share pins and start conversations with people directly. The key difference is that there is no static contact list for chats. After a pin is sent, the user is given a list of contacts to choose from and is directed to a separate screen for messages in smartphones. Group messaging is also available with up to 10 members.

The app includes a range of add-ons on its home page, including online shopping, PNR status check, videos, social media and other content from popular websites. Other features include QR Scanner, Clipboard, FB Faster and Ad Block.
