  • You will then see that the conversation is removed from the top of your chat screen.

By default, Snapchat uses the red color pin emoji when you pin people on Snapchat, but similar to the red heart on Snapchat, the app does allow you to change the pin emoji and use any other available friend emojis. Follow the steps detailed below to customize the pinned conversation emoji on Snapchat:

  • Open the Snapchat app and tap the Bitmoji (or profile) icon at the top left.
  • Here, tap the Settings icon available at the top right.
  • Then, scroll down and tap the Friend Emojis option on your iPhone or the Customize Emojis option if you use an Android phone.
