Here’s how you can pin WhatsApp chat:

  1. Open the WhatsApp Messenger app.
  2. Swipe the conversion to the right if you’re using an iPhone. Tap the Pin option.
  3. Long-press the chat in the WhatsApp app if you use an Android phone. If you wish, you can select up to three conversations. Tap the Pin icon at the top.

That’s all. Note that the “Pin” symbol appears in the Chats tab for each pinned chat.

To unpin a pinned WhatsApp conversation, follow the steps above. You’ll see the “Unpin.” Tap on it.

  • WhatsApp shows chats in chronological order by default.

  • Note that no one knows when you unpin or pin a chat, and the pinned chats are always at the top until unpinned.
