Trying to uninstall GamePigeon from iMessage on your iPhone or iPad? 

Playing a couple of games with your friends over your iPhone can be a really cool pastime. Personally, we love playing Chess with our teammates here at Saint. However, it can be a really annoying experience when uninstalling these games.

The instructions aren’t provided, and the steps aren’t intuitive. Luckily, we’ve scoured the internet and experimented on our own Apple devices to find out how you can uninstall and even reinstall these games on your iPhone or iPad.

If you wanna stick around after you’ve uninstalled GamePigeon, we’ll also list down a couple of new features you can do on iMessage for iOS 14.

1. Uninstall GamePigeon.

iMessage offers a lot of games that you can choose from. These can range to single or multiplayer games and can be played with the person across your conversation. This is a pretty cool feature that was extremely popular a couple of years back.

Although the games are still popular today, a lot of users do want to get rid of it. The only kicker is that it can be really troublesome to do so. Uninstalling these games, as we found out, is pretty simple but without a guide can be nearly impossible to figure out.

Well, here’s how you can uninstall GamePigeon on your iPhone or iPad:

  1. First, open up iMessage and tap on the conversation where the game is. You can also start a new conversation if you don’t want to have to look through your messages.
  2. Now, bring up the App Drawer by pressing on the A icon to the left of your text box. A list of apps should be displayed at the bottom part of your screen.
  3. Next, swipe all the way to the right until you reach the end. Tap on the three dots to continue.
  4. Then, tap on the Edit button at the top-left corner of your screen. We’ll need to list GamePigeon as one of your favorites before we delete it.

One of the best features that iOS 14 added into our iMessaging experience is being able to pin conversations. We’ve all tried scrolling through numerous conversations just to reply or text someone we always talk to.

By pinning your messages, you’ll be able to access these contacts easily. These messages will remain pinned at the top portion of your iMessage interface, for ease of access. Furthermore, these icons are displayed in a 3 by 3 orientation, so you’ll have a maximum of nine pinned contacts.

How to pin conversations:

  1. Start by opening up iMessage and looking for the contact you want to pin.
  2. Now, swipe the conversations you want to be pinned to the right. A yellow pin should appear on your screen.

4. Alert Your Friend Through Mentions.

Another quick and simple addition to iMessage is being able to specifically mention an individual in a group chat. This way, even if they have notifications turned off, they’ll still be notified that they were mentioned.

This is especially useful if you’re the type to mute group conversations, we understand that they can be annoying. The mentioning feature used to be exclusively available for Messenger or other third-party applications but, thanks to iOS 14, iMessage can do it now too.
