You can find millions of comments on popular YouTube videos. If you have a YouTube channel and regularly post videos, you have the option of pinning someone's comment on your video. Once you pin a comment, it will be placed at the top of the comments section for everyone to see. Not only that, but only you will have the power to unpin the comment, returning it to its original place.


In this article, we will show you how to pin a comment on a YouTube video. Additionally, we will go through the process of pinning a comment on YouTube live chat.


There are a few rules when it comes to pinning comments on YouTube. First, you can only pin comments to your own YouTube videos. With that in mind, no one else is allowed to pin or unpin comments on your videos. However, they are allowed to react to it in different ways. You are also allowed to pin as many comments as you want.

For YouTubers, this feature is especially important. They can use it to pin their own comments where they can advertise their content or merchandise, provide another video as a suggestion, or add links to important social media platforms. In fact, pinning your own comments on YouTube is considered a great marketing strategy because they're sure to grab everyone's attention.

To pin a comment on a YouTube video, here's what you need to do:

  1. Go to Youtube and login to your account.
  2. Go to your channel and open one of your videos.
  3. Scroll down to your comments section and find the comment you want to pin. If you want to pin your own comment, write it in the box below.
  4. Click on the three dots to the right of the comment.
  5. Select “Pin” from the context menu.
  6. Click the "Pin" button in the dialog window.

The comment will be immediately pinned to the top of the comments section. Once the comment is pinned, your followers and other YouTube users will see "Pinned by" between the person's comment username and your username. If you change your mind, here's how you can unpin it:



  1. Select the three dots next to their username.
  2. Choose “Detach” from the menu.

If you decide to unpin a comment, it will return to its original place. If you do this, the person whose comment you pinned will not be notified.

If you want to pin a comment on the YouTube mobile app, here's how to do it on an iPhone:

  1. Open the YouTube app on your iPhone.
  2. Log into your account if you haven't already.
  3. Tap your profile picture in the top right corner.
  4. Select the "Your Channel" option from the menu.
  5. Open one of your videos and tap the "Comments" tab under the video.
  6. Find a comment you want to pin.
  7. Tap the three dots next to the comment.
  8. Select "Pin".
  9. Confirm that you want to pin this comment.

That's all we can say about it. You can pin as many comments as you want, but it's best to stick to one or two or it will be too long for your followers to read.

To pin a comment to a YouTube video on an Android device, follow these steps:

How to pin a comment on YouTube Live Chat

Another option is to pin a comment in YouTube Live Chats. Just like with regular YouTube videos, only the video creator, or in this case the live stream host, has the ability to pin and unpin comments. Viewers aren't allowed to pin comments on your live streams, and neither are moderators.


However, unlike regular YouTube videos, you can only pin one comment at a time in YouTube Live Chats. You can unpin a comment manually or just pin another comment, and the oldest one will return to its original place.

Live chats are even more hectic than the regular comment sections under YouTube videos. Every comment you make will disappear in seconds. This of course depends on how many viewers you have. For videos that have thousands or even hundreds of thousands of views, this feature can be extremely handy.

To pin a comment on a YouTube live chat, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Youtube and login to your account.
  2. Click the camera icon in the upper right corner of your screen.
  3. Choose "Go Live" from the drop-down menu.
  4. When you see a comment you want to pin in the live chat, click the three dots next to it.
  5. Select "Pin".

The message will be pinned to the top of the live chat, just below a Super Chat comment. To unpin a comment in live chat, click the three dots again and select "Unpin" or simply pin another comment.

Pin all your favorite YouTube comments

The more popular your YouTube channel is, the more comments each of your videos will have. That's why the pinning feature is so useful – you can use it to pin any comment you like. Whether you want to pin someone else's comment or your own, it only takes a few seconds. The only difficulty in pinning a comment is finding the right one.
