WhatsApp is planning to launch a new feature in its upcoming update. The feature will let you pin any 3 chats to the top. The feature is very handy and useful for almost all users.
Almost all smartphone users now use WhatsApp on their phones. We send a lot of messages daily and receive a lot of messages. Almost every one of us is also a part of a number of groups which we can’t leave for some reasons. The pin feature will be useful in this situation. You’ll be able to pin up to 3 chats on the top of the list, in this way it will be easier to find the people you talk to the most.
Those pinned chats will always remain at the top no matter you receive messages from other chats. If you want to test the feature right now, it is available in the version 2.17.164 beta. You can download the beta file below. You can only pin up to 3 chats at a time. If you try to pin more chats, it will simply give you the error that you cannot pin more than 3 chats at a time. WhatsApp might add the feature to pin more chats in the future, but for now, you can only pin 3 chats.
To pin a chat, long press on the chat you want to pin and a pin icon will appear at the top. Just tap that icon and your chat will be pinned.
