This is how you mark WhatsApp messages with a star


You can mark a WhatsApp message that you want to read again later with a star. In this tip we show you how you can mark individual chat messages as favorites and then find them again.

Some messages you receive via WhatsApp you would like to review later. But especially in group conversations, such chat messages can quickly disappear from view in the constant stream of messages. That's why WhatsApp lets you mark your messages with a star so you can find them at any time. Starring is very easy and so is viewing all marked favorites.

Of course you also want to be able to find the marked messages again:

  1. Tap Settings at the bottom right.
  2. At the top of the list you will see Starred messages, recognizable by the yellow icon.< /li>
  3. Here you will see a list of all messages you have ever starred.

By tapping on a marked message in this overview, the chat window will automatically appear. The highlighted message will then turn dark gray for easier identification.

You can also go to a specific WhatsApp conversation and tap the contact or group name at the top. Via Starred Messages you can see which messages you have starred within this chat.

If you prefer to mark people as favorites in WhatsApp, you can do that too. You can pin certain conversations and people to the top, so that they are always immediately visible when you start the app. To do this, swipe to the right in the list view of chats and choose Pin.
