In its latest Beta release, Whatsapp has brought in a pretty useful feature for the users, unlike the plethora of those snapchat mimics which it has constantly been pushing over the past two months.
Using this new feature, users can pin up to three Chats which, for them, are important, relevant, or worthy of being on the top.
As seen on the image above, the pinning feature will be available up top, on the left of the mute option. This might not be a big thing for most of the users, but this is for sure going to be helpful for those power whatsappers who have tons of groups joined in. This would prevent the important chats being thrown to the bottom by those flooding group messages.

Android Police, apparently, spotted this feature which is not something new, considering how active these guys are when android updates is the point of talk.
if you're running WhatsApp beta for Android versions 2.17.162 or 2.17.163, you might already have noticed the new pin feature. The update also brings in several other features like mute, archive and delete.
To unpin the chat, user simply has to long press on the respective chat and click on unpin.
How to get the new pinning feature in whatsapp?
If you are running the pure stock variant of whatsapp, you might have to wait a while to have this feature arrived, but you could always opt for the beta version of the app from the play store, and have this feature right away.
