Whatsapp Now Lets You Pin Your Favourite Chats On Top by Codedboy95(m): 10:24am On May 01, 2017
WhatsApp has recently been reported to be testing many new features like 'Change Number' and 'Live Location', and now the company is seen testing a new feature that allows you to pin your favourite chats to the top. The feature is being tested on Android for now, but it hints that it is set to roll out to stable versions in the near future.

Android Police was the first one to spot it, and 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, and choose the Pin symbol from the top bar. The other options alongside Pin are Delete, Mute, and Archive. Once you pin the chat, it will remain on the top of your chat list, irrespective of your dialogue or conversation timings with the individual or group concerned. Even though you have more recent 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 these 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 the beta version on Google Play from your Android phone.

Whose chat are you going to pin ?

mum? dad? or bae? grin

Pinning needs getting used to, as when you pin a chat it stays to permanently so any new message(s) will be always be below it. I find myself looking up​ for new messages anytime i get new notifications.

Also last pinned chat stays up, first pinned stays below it.
Tho me oo, i still prefer to archive all other chats and leave my fav for frontage.

WhatsApp is looking for trouble and will soon find it. I and many others use the app for messaging. I do not want as a social media app. Get outa my face Mark Z. Any more of this nonsense and Telegram will take over your users
