WhatsApp is bringing another cool feature that will allow users to pin their favourite chats to the top.

The company, which seems to be working on several features at the same time, will allow users to pin conversations with their favourite contacts to the top to the Chats tab. The new feature is being tested on Android for now, but is expected to roll out to stable versions of the app soon.

According to Android Police, if you’re running WhatsApp beta for Android versions 2.17.162 or 2.17.163, you’ll most likely be able to use it. Press on the individual/ group chat you want to pin to the top, and choose the Pin symbol from the top bar. The other options alongside Pin are Delete, Mute, and Archive.

Once you pin a chat, it will remain on the top of your chat list. Even though you have more recent WhatsApp chats with other individuals and groups, you will see them after these pinned chats. WhatsApp allows you to pin a maximum number of three chats, after which it will throw a notification that ‘You can only pin up to 3 chats’ if you try to pin another chat.

You can also unpin WhatsApp chats whenever you please, by long pressing the option, and disabling the Pin button. As mentioned, this feature is in beta and has not rolled out to stable versions yet. If you cannot wait to use these feature, sign up for WhatsApp beta on Google Play from your Android phone. Furthermore, you can also download the APK File from APK Mirror.
