Doing this will ensure that no matter how many messages you get from different contacts, the one that matters to you the most stays on top and you don’t miss it.
How to Pin a Contact to the Top?
Pinning the contact on the top can be done directly from the Chats tab, you just need to ensure that your beta version of the app is updated to the aforementioned version to be able to use this feature.
Open WhatsApp and head to the Chats Tab.
Press the contact that you want to pin to the top.
You’ll see a Pin icon on the left among several other options including delete, archive and mute.
Press on the Pin icon and you’re done.
Currently, WhatsApp only supports pinning three contacts at once. Once your contact is pinned to the top, it won’t be overshadowed by any new messages by other contacts on the phone as the pinned ones always stay on the top.
