WhatsApp has quietly updated the beta version of its application with a new feature that enables you to pin up to three chats to the top of your conversation list, which will likely prove to be useful if you’re chatting to a ton of people throughout the day and want easy access to priority contacts.
If you’re running the beta build of WhatsApp on your Android-powered smartphone and want to take advantage of the new functionality, simply press and hold on the chat you want to pin in the conversation list, then select the relevant option from the pop-up menu.
Don’t get your hopes up
This revelation doesn’t necessarily mean that the feature will make its way to the public version any time soon — so don’t get your hopes up. The instant messaging giant has tested new tools in the past, only to scrap them after finding they weren’t a hit with the majority users.
