When you pin someone’s chat on Snapchat, that chat always appears at the top of the “Chat” screen. This ensures you don’t miss any messages from that person. We’ll show you how to pin and unpin people in Snapchat.

Note: As of the writing in December 2021, you can only pin chats in Snapchat for iPhone. Snapchat for Android has yet to receive the feature.

What Happens When You Pin People on Snapchat

When you pin a conversation, it always appears at the top of your “Chat” screen, even if you receive new messages in other conversations. If you no longer want a chat at the top, you can easily unpin that conversation.

Snapchat also lets you customize the icon used to display the pinned chats. We’ll cover that as well here in this guide.

Pin a Conversation With Someone on Snapchat

To pin a conversation, first, open Snapchat on your iPhone. In the bottom bar of the app, tap “Chat” (a bubble icon).

Tap "Chat" in Snapchat.

On the “Chat” screen, tap and hold the conversation you want to pin.

Select the chat to pin.

In the menu that opens, tap “Chat Settings.”

Tap "Chat Settings" in the menu.

In the “Chat Settings” menu, tap “Pin Conversation.”

Select "Pin Conversation" from the menu.

And your selected chat is now pinned to the top of the “Chat” screen. Next to this chat, you will see a pin icon.

On the profile page, in the top-right corner, tap “Settings” (a gear icon).

Tap "Settings" on the profile page.

On the “Settings” page, scroll down to the “Additional Services” section. Then tap “Manage.”

Select "Manage" on the "Settings" page.

In the “Manage” menu, tap “Friend Emojis.”

Tap "Friend Emojis" on the "Manage" screen.

At the bottom of the “Friend Emojis” screen, tap “Pinned Conversation.”

Select "Pinned Conversation" on the "Friend Emojis" page.

You now have various icons on your screen. To make an icon the default for pinned chats, tap that icon on this screen. Snapchat will immediately start using that icon for your pinned conversations.

To go back, in the app’s top-left corner, tap the back-arrow icon.

And you are all set.

The option to pin a conversation in Snapchat is really useful, as it helps you keep your important chats easily reachable. We hope you enjoy using it.
