Why Can’t I Pin Someone on Snapchat?

You’re trying to pin someone on Snapchat, but it’s just not working. What gives? There are a few reasons why you may not be able to pin someone.

1. No Snapchat Plus Subscription

The most common reason is that you don’t have a Snapchat Plus subscription. Unfortunately, you can only use the pin feature with a subscription.

2. You’re a Plus Subscriber and Android User 

If you are a Plus subscriber and an Android user, you may not be able to pin someone because you’ve already pinned your #1 Best Friend. Android users can only pin one person, whereas iPhone users can pin conversations with multiple people.

3. Your App Isn’t Updated

A third reason why you may not be able to pin someone is that your app is not up to date. Pinning people and conversations is a relatively new feature, so if you haven’t updated your app in a while, this may be the reason why you can’t pin chats on Snapchat.

Pinning conversations and people on Snapchat makes it quick and easy to talk to your favorite people. Follow the steps above to start pinning conversations and even customize your pins to find your friends more easily.
