If you are a Snapchat user, you must be familiar with this option. But if you haven’t used it, or don’t know how to, we will give you some information.

As Snapchat is a chat app, the moderators inserted an option for pinning a chat. This means that in the list of your conversations, you can set the specific chat to always be at the top of your chat list, even if you haven’t heard from this person in a long time. The last person you have chatted with will be listed below the pinned chat.

You can pin chat on Snapchat if you have an iPhone or an Android smartphone. Snapchat allows you to pin three conversations, so if you need to pin another one, you must first unpin someone whose conversation was pinned previously.
