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.

To get this option, you will need WhatsApp beta 2.17.162 or 163, which you can find on APK Mirror or grab from the Play Store by joining the beta then waiting for the app to update.
