Why is pinning messages useful?
Pinning messages in a chat can be really helpful and useful if you want to remember that message and make sure that you do not forget it if it’s something important. It is one of the best features that app like this can offer. It is especially handy if you are really busy and you do not have the time to remember and organize all of the messages that you get. When you pin a message in the chat, that chat will automatically appear in the first place in your chat list making it a priority. And, of course, when you open that exact chat, the first message that you are going to see there is, you have guessed it, the pinned message because you have made it a priority. This pinning feature is available on most of the messaging apps these days, but, unfortunately, it is kind of underrated and not that much used.
Steps to pinning a message on Telegram
We already assume that you have the Telegram app installed on your phone and that you are already logged into your account. If that is the case, then, open the app on your phone in order to continue following the steps down below.
- Once you have opened the app, find the chat that contains the message that you want to pin and open it.
- You will probably have to scroll a bit until you find the message that you want to pin to your chat. When you spot the message among many others, tap op it so that you can open a new pop-up window.
- In the pop-up window, you will be able to see some of the most used and useful options. For example, the Copy option is there, the Delete option also and, of course, the Pin option. Tap on that Pin option now.
- If you want to pin a message in a group chat, another smaller pop-up window should show up on your screen asking you whether you want to pin a message and notify all of the members in the group. You are able to uncheck the Notify all member’s options and then confirm that. But, if you do want to notify all the members of the group that you have pinned a message, leave that checkmark and simply confirm that by clicking on the Ok button at the end of that small pop-up window on your screen. If you are pinning a message in a chat with one person you will not get this notification on your screen.
That was all, you have successfully pinned a message in the chat. We hope that you have also remembered all of these steps and that you learned how to pin your messages by yourself when you need to.
