What Does Pin Mean On Telegram? Why Is It Useful?

By pinning, you put your desired chats and messages at the top of the list. Regardless of how many messages you receive, the pinned one will always be at the top.

How To Pin Telegram Chats

 

Pin Telegram Chats

There are many personal chats between regular Telegram users. It is common for them to be members of different Telegram channels and groups and often use Telegram bots. They chat quite a bit for all these reasons, which makes their chat list quite long. Having such long lists can make finding the people one prefers talking to most difficult, and it can be a real patience tester.

As with the pinning feature in the group, you can make use of the pin feature on your Telegram account as well. Using this feature, you can pin personal chats, channels, groups, and so on. It is currently possible to pin up to five chats on the Telegram app.

Pin Chats Using Android

When using your Android device, open Telegram and long-press your favourite chat, channel, etc., that you would like to pin at the top. The pin icon can be found at the top of the screen.

It is possible to see that the desired chat is pinned at the top. Because your pinned chat stays at the top, you won’t worry about how many messages you receive. As well as pinning chats, you can also unpin them.

Chats can also be pinned and unpinned using the Telegram desktop app. The steps below will guide you through the process.

  1. Right-click on the chat that you want to pin at the top.
  2. Select Pin to top.

How To Unpin Telegram Chats

Unpinning chats on Telegram can be a useful way to declutter your conversations and keep track of important messages. If you have an Android device, it is easy to unpin chats from the app. To do this, simply long-press the chat that you pinned earlier.

This will bring up a menu with several options, including the option to unpin the chat. Tap the unpin icon at the top, and the chat will be removed from your pinned list. It is also possible to unpin multiple chats at once if you need to clear out your pinned list quickly. To do this, open up your pinned list and select all of the chats that you want to remove by tapping on them one by one.

Once all of them are selected, tap on the unpin icon at the top, and they will all be removed from your list in one go. Unpinning chats on Telegram is a great way to stay organised and ensure that only important messages remain visible in your conversations.

Restrict Group Members From Removing Pinned Messages

The most common problem you might face if you own a large private group on Telegram with really active members would be, having your pinned messages removed by someone. When a message has been removed, writing and pinning it again can be tedious, especially when it is quite long.

There is a possibility that your message will be unpinned again after it has been pinned. To prevent your members from doing so, it is better to restrain them.

Using Android Device

You can change the pin permission in a private group by launching the Telegram app and opening it. Go to the top of the screen and tap the group name. Once you’ve selected the edit icon, click on it. Tap on Permissions in the next step.

On the permissions screen, toggle the one saying Pin Messages off and tap the tick icon. You can now relax because no one other than the group admin(s) can pin or unpin any message in the group.

Using Desktop App

You can select the desired group by opening the Telegram desktop application. Go to the top right of the screen and select Manage groups by clicking on the three-dot icon. Choose Permissions from the drop-down menu. The Pin messages should be toggled off similarly to the mobile devices. Lastly, click on Save.
