WhatsApp is testing a new feature that will let you pin three chats at the top of your conversation list in the beta version of its app, according to Android Police. If you’ve ever been chatting with a bunch of different people during the day and got tired of scrolling to find the person you want to respond to, this feature will definitely come in handy.

To pin a chat, simply tap and hold on the chat in the conversation list, and the option to pin will show up. Of course it may take a bit before the feature makes it to the public version of WhatsApp, but it’s something to look forward to. Hopefully other services like iMessage will adopt a feature like this soon.
