Those of us who use WhatsApp a lot, know that the chat list gets pretty much messed up many times a day with groups, family and friends, and the random individual chats. Now the Facebook-owned app is making it a bit easier to jump directly to the chats which are most important to you.
The latest addition to the app in Pinned Chats. WhatsApp beta 2.17.162 now lets you pin a chats to the top. Just tap and hold on any chat and you get a new pin icon in the action bar next to the delete, mute, and archive functions.
Once pinned, a conversation stays on top of the list regardless of how many new messages are received and a maximum of three chats can be pinned to the top.
