Snapchat also lets you customize the “Thumbtack or Pin” icon on your pinned conversations. You can change the pin icon appearance by choosing different emojis to show it instead of your pinned conversations.

  1. Open Snapchat on your iPhone and open your profile by tapping on your bitmoji.
  2. On the profile page, press the “Gear” icon in the top-right corner to access your settings. open snapchat app settings
  3. Scroll down until you see the “Friend Emojis” option under “Additional Settings” and open it. open friend emojis inside snapchat settings
