What happens when you pin a chat on WhatsApp?

When you pin a chat on WhatsApp, it automatically rejects being pinned at the top of your conversation list. But you can only pin up to three separate chats at a time.

A pinned chat is marked with a pin.

After pinning the second chat, it will appear above the previously pinned one. Unfortunately, WhatsApp does not provide the ability to manually reorder the list of pinned conversations. As a result, the desire to form a certain order will force you to play a little with pinning and unpinning chats. If you immediately know which specific three chats you want to place at the top of the list, then add them there in reverse order.

The WhatsApp client has the ability to customize notifications for both pinned chats and unpinned chats.
