How To Pin a Chat On WhatsApp

The truth is WhatsApp keeps getting better by the day. The latest feature to grace the world's most popular IM app is the addition of features that allows you Pin up to 3 chats to the top just as we have in some online forums.

The ability to Pin chats on whatsapp will be a great aspect of the social app especially for those of us that have numerous number of conversations from so many people. Things can get clustered thereby making it a bit hard or time consuming to search for your favorite chats but with this latest update, you can simply Pin your favorite chats at the top.

However, this new feature is only available on the WhatsApp beta version 2.17.162 (and now 163). In other words, you won't be able to access it on the regular whatsapp application as of the time of writing this post except you are using WhatsApp Beta.

✔️ Download latest WhatsApp beta 2.17.163
✔️ Install it on your Android device and run it
✔️ Tap and hold on any chat and you’ll get a new pin icon in the action bar next to the delete, mute, and archive functions.

For now, only 3 chats can be pin after which get a small toast notification message saying you can't pin more.

We hope it becomes available on the regular app sooner than expected.


  1. With all these features being rolled out on a daily basis i might be tempted to go back to the official whatsapp instead of my Gbwhatsapp.

  2. Nice improvement from whatsapp
