In Telegram, you can pin conversations and messages. Let’s see how.

I use the app (Android and iPhone), Web, and Desktop app.

Pin and Unpin Chats and Messages on Telegram (Android)

Here are the steps to pin conversations:

Open the Telegram app and press the contact or group chat you like.

You can see the Pin icon. Tap it, and that’s all.

Here are the steps to pin messages:

Open the conversation and hit the one you prefer.

Hit the Pin option between the Forward and Edit.

Now you can see a popup. You can see Also Pin for (contact name) if you’re in contact chat. This one will pin the message for that contact too.

If you’re in group chat, you can view Notify all members. This one will notify all participants about this pinning.

Select the above option if that’s what you want. Hit “Pin,” and that’s it.

To unpin a message, follow these steps:

Hit the X icon at the top of the pinned message—Hit Unpin in the popup.

Alternatively, you can tap the pinned message in the chat and view the Unpin. Hit it.

To unpin all pinned messages at once, follow these steps:

Tap the icon beside the pinned messages at the top of the chat.

Note: You can also unpin a single one by tapping it and selecting the Unpin option.

Now you can see the Unpin All Messages at the bottom. Tap it.

That’s all.
