Unpin a message

Copy link

Sendbird Chat SDK for Flutter allows you to unpin messages in group channels. Unpinning messages that are no longer relevant or important helps to keep the pinned messages organized in your channel.

Unpinning a message in a channel

You can unpin a message using the unpinMessage() method of the GroupChannel class. Specify the messageId of a message to unpin as shown in the code below.

try {
  await channel.unpinMessage(MESSAGE_ID);
} catch (e) {
  // Handle error.

The following table shows a list of properties related to the pinned messages feature. The pinnedMessageIds, and lastPinnedMessage properties belong to the GroupChannel class.
