Pinterest: Here’s How to Send a Text Message on Mobile

Users can chat within the app

Previously, we taught you how to send a Pin to another user in the Pinterest mobile application. But what if you just want to send a text message to another user? Our guide will show you how this is done.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Pinterest app on iOS.

Step 1: Tap “Notifications” at the bottom of the screen.

Step 2: Tap “Inbox” near the top of the screen.

Step 3: Tap “New message.”

Step 4: Scroll through your list of contacts and tap the user(s) you’d like to send a message to. Alternatively, tap the “Search contacts” field at the top of the screen to search for one or more users manually.

Step 5 (optional): If you searched for a user manually, tap the correct user in the list of search results that appears to add them as a recipient.

Step 6: When you’re done selecting recipients, tap “Next.”

Step 7: Tap “Add a message” at the bottom of the screen.

Step 8: Type your message.

Step 9: Tap “Send” to send the message.

Once you’ve started a conversation, you can continue chatting at a later time by completing Steps 1-2 above and tapping the conversation in your list of active conversations.
