With this new feature, users of the instant messaging app are allowed to select a conversation and pin it to the top of their chats, meaning the said chat will always be at the top when the WhatsApp app is opened. The company has rolled out "Pinned Chats" which as the name implies, will allow you to pin chats special to you, to the top of the chats window. If you try adding more chats further, it pop ups a notification 'You can only pin up to 3 chats'.
WhatsApp also released a press statement saying, "With pinned chats, you never have to worry about scrolling through the long list of conversations to text your family members or your best friend".
WhatsApp has brought out a new feature that lets you pin your chats to the top. WhatsApp users can pin up to three contacts on top with the new feature.
WhatsApp has a lot of great features making their way to the beta version of the app. They can do it by long-pressing the option and disabling the Pin button.More news: Harden, James top All-NBA team; George, Hayward shut out

Still, all send and done, the feature will definitely come in handy if you're waiting on an important message or you are simply too busy to manage your chats.
While the new feature might be quite simple, we can say that it is very useful, especially when you talk with many people on WhatsApp. The chat will remain at the top no matter what other messages you receive.
And if you later change your mind and want to unpin the chat, you need to follow the same steps. Similarly, to unpin a chat, tap and hold and you will find the unpin option pop up at the top.
