Snapchat always looks for ways to improve the app and to its credit, the company has pioneered features that have been copied by other social media platforms. 

To make it easier for the million users to reach out to close friends and ensure they never miss a Snap, the app introduced the option to “pin” a conversation.

Here’s how to pin someone on Snapchat.

What Does a Pin Mean on Snapchat?

The Snapchat app’s pin feature allows users to keep certain chats at the top of the chat list. Usually, when users get a new message in the app, Snapchat will push it to the top automatically. When a person is pinned, they’ll stay at the top, regardless of whether someone else messaged you after them. 

Pinning a person or a conversation means easier access to their chat and makes sure you won’t miss a Snap from them.

How to Pin a Conversation on Snapchat

The option to pin a conversation in Snapchat is not yet available for Android users. However, Android users can pin a conversation on their home screen rather than the chat screen in the app. 

To pin a conversation, regardless of whether you’re an iOS or an Android user, you need to have the latest version of the app on your phone, and if you don’t. 

Here’s a step-by-step on how to pin a friend/group in the app:

  • Step 1: Launch the “Snapchat” app and head over to the chat screen.
  • Step 2: Press and hold on a group/friend chat you want to pin to the top.
  • Step 3: Tap “Chat Settings.”
  • Step 4: Select “Pin Conversation.”

A red pin (📌) will appear next to the name of the person/group in the app, indicating that Snapchat has pinned their conversation. You can place any other emoji in its place, too. 

Note: Your pinned friend/group will not be notified when you pin them. You can pin up to three people in the app.

How to Unpin Someone on Snapchat

Removing a Snap pin is simple and can be done with a couple of taps. It is quite similar to the process of pinning a conversation. 

To unpin a group/friend from the chat screen:

  • Step 1: Press and hold on a Snapchat friend’s name. 
  • Step 2: Tap “More” on the menu
  • Step 3: Select “Unpin Conversation.”

Bottom Line

Pinning a conversation at the top of the chat screen is one of the most convenient features that Snapchat has to offer. The process of pinning (or unpinning) someone takes only a couple of seconds and helps users locate conversations easier, making Snapchat one of the most-used communication apps.

Frequently Asked Questions And Their Answers
