How to start an iMessage chat with iPhone

Let’s start with iMessage , the messaging app installed by default on all Apple smartphones : to fix the chat with a particular contact at the top, all you have to do is open the Messages app (represented by a balloon on a green background and normally located on the Home screen), locate the chat of the contact you want to fix at the top of the screen and make a long tap on the aforementioned chat.

At this point you will see a menu appear in which there is the option called Highlight ; press on it and, automatically, you will see the circle relating to the contact placed above all the other chats present. Done! Also remember that you can perform the same operation with numerous other chats, thus highlighting more than one.

Instead, to remove a highlighted chat, all you have to do is repeat the same procedure, with the only difference that, after the prolonged tap on the aforementioned chat, you must then press on the item Not highlighted in the pop-up menu. Simple, isn’t it?

How to start a chat on WhatsApp with iPhone

Want to know how to set up a chat on iPhone , but this time on the WhatsApp instant messaging app ? Proceed as follows: start the app by tapping on its icon on the Home screen or in the App Library of your iPhone, locate the chat you want to highlight (and which will therefore remain fixed at the top) and swipe right on it it.

Once this is done you will see the Fixed button appear : press on it and, if everything is successful, the chat you selected will be marked with a pin symbol to indicate that it is fixed at the top. On WhatsApp you can set up to three chats.

If you want to remove one you can follow the same face procedure to fix it and, once dragged, press the Do not fix button , to make it again a normal chat subject to scrolling down in case of arrival of other messages from further chats.

How to fix a chat on Telegram with iPhone

Do you use Telegram and want to fix a chat at the top? Well, then start the app in question by tapping on its icon, then locate the chat you want to highlight, then swipe right on it and press the Fixed button . Alternatively you can make a long tap on the chat and, from the menu that opens, select the Fixed item .

Once this is done you will see the pin symbol appear in correspondence with the chat you selected. You can also set up to five chats or channels , beyond which it is no longer possible to highlight chats.

To delete a highlighted chat you can follow the same procedure seen a few lines above and press the green Remove button . Simple, right?

How to fix a chat on Messenger with iPhone

Messenger , the Facebook messaging app, does not have a useful setting for fixing one chat above the others. It also doesn’t allow you to select any contact as a favorite.

For these reasons I am sorry to inform you that, at least for the moment, there is nothing you can do to fix a chat on Messenger via your iPhone. If, however, you would like additional information on Messenger and how it works you can take a look at my tutorials on how to hide a conversation on Messenger , how to see archived chats and how to see secret conversations .

How to start a chat on Instagram with iPhone

Want to make sure that a particular contact ‘s Instagram Direct Messages stay pinned up? So I’m sorry to inform you that, as in the case of Facebook Messenger, it is currently not possible to do this even on Instagram.

For additional information on Direct Message, however, I recommend that you consult my guides on how to send messages on Instagram and how to like messages on Instagram .
