Here’s how to bookmark important messages on WhatsApp

Popular messaging app WhatsApp is the most widely used platform by friends, family, and colleagues for several purposes. These messages could range from photos, videos, screenshots, and more. 

Sometimes you look for certain important messages and therefore for that, one needs to bookmark the messages as you will need to see them. The Facebook-owned messaging platform comes with a feature called “Starred” messages that basically helps in cutting all the clutter and get you the most important messages. 

For instance, if a family member has shared something really important and you have to find the message, then you can easily use this feature to read the message again.

Here’s how to mark the messages as important:

  • Choose the message you want by long pressing on it. Then select multiple messages this way.
  • After selecting the message or messages, spot the star icon in the tab above the chat window.
  • Tap on the star icon to bookmark this message.
