According to Indian Express, the feature had been previously seen a few weeks ago on Android Beta for testing. Basically, you can pin a post to the top of the page, for everyone to see. With the pinned chats enabled, any other new message will appear after the chats you have pinned. The pin option will appear on the on top. WhatsApp users will need to download the latest WhatsApp update from the Google PlayStore.


Once a chat is pinned, it stays on top of the window, regardless of the recency of the conversation.
