How to pin a message in Telegram

Telegram is one of the most convenient messengers among many others. Its multifunctionality, indeed, helps not only to conveniently use basic needs such as sending photos in one pile or saving gifs for later use but also in business – for example, to create channels and groups, including bots, etc.

One such feature is the ability to pin a message at the top of the chat. This is very useful when you not only correspond and need not lose things but even if you have created a group and invited people and need to introduce them to the topic. In order not to lose the rules or the basic information in the chat, the attached messages at the top of it play a very important role.

How to pin a message in Telegram

The attached message is created very easily and quickly from any device. Here’s how to do it:

  • Open the chat where the message you want to pin is located
  • Tap on the message until a pop-up box appears
  • Select Pin, then choose whether to allow all people to know you pinned it
  • Confirm your action by tapping Pin
  • Your message remains at the top of your message screen, letting everyone know you have attached a specific message and it is available to read at any time
  • However, when you no longer need it, simply tap the X icon and select Unpin

You can also create several such pinned messages. They will hang in the same place, but will not pile up and will only show you as one latest message. To go to older messages, just tap on the pinned message again and you will jump to the previous message. Repeat this until you get to the first pinned message.
