This is another handy feature we’ve been expecting for a very long time and now, its been added to the WhatsApp beta, very soon it will begin roll out to normal WhatsApp.
Those of us who often make use of WhatsApp will know that conversation can be much crowded most especially messages from family and friends and atimes you keep looking for that favorite conversation you need.
WhatsApp beta version 2.17.162 (and now 163) helps you solve that problem by adding the Pin Chat feature. The Pinned chats feature allow you to Pin chats and it appears at the top of the list regardless of the recency of the last message compared to other chats.
How to Pin Chat?
>>Tap and hold on any chat and you’ll get a new pin icon in the action bar next to the delete, mute, and archive functions.
For now, only 3 chats can be pin after which get a small toast notification message saying you can’t pin more.
