If you want to make talking to your favorite people on Snapchat even easier, you’re able to pin them on some devices so their chat is always easy to access. Here’s how to pin people on Snapchat.

Multimedia instant messaging app Snapchat continues to be an immensely popular platform, as it makes it super easy to send your friends disappearing messages and videos, as well as to upload stories for your contacts to see.

It’s easy to start chats with a number of different people on the platform, and your recent chats list can build up without you even realizing it.

Fortunately, on some devices, you are able to pin people to the top of your list, which means you’ll always know where to find them if you want to send them a message.

Can you pin people on Snapchat Android?

For some time, only iPhone users had the ability to pin conversations to the top of their list, however, in August 2022 some users reported that the feature was available on Android only to those who had a Snapchat Plus subscription.

It’s not clear whether they plan on rolling out the ability to pin people on Android to all users in the future, but for the time being, if you’re not a Snapchat Plus user, it looks like you won’t be able to pin conversations.
