Montreal: WhatsApp has been giving users the whole new features every time when it releases the new update. Now that, the app has rolled out beta version for Android which allows users to star the important messages so as to make it easy for the users to find the messages after some time.
Though there are numerous messaging apps available in the market, WhatsApp is in the peak of popularity because of its amazing features and easy-to-use interface. Having more than one billion users across the world, WhatsApp continues to add new features to enhance the overall experience of users.
There are a few users who have been communicating over the app extensively having slew of messages on the app. For such users, finding one specific message could be like finding a needle in the haystack. Of course, WhatsApp has search function but it may not be the most convenient way to find specific messages, especially if you don’t remember the word used while texting.
Find specific messages easily
Starred messages can definitely be a great alternative for users to find a particular message from the lot. Users will have an option to star the important messages like bookmarking the important information so that they don’t have to search over the slew of messages.
Though the usefulness of the app is pretty great, it’s not been an option so far. Even now, the feature has been rolled out just as the beta which means the full version of the feature is yet to be received on the main app.
How does the feature work?
On the new beta version, you can just tap and hold on any message until you get a star icon on the apps tool bar, next to the delete and copy icons. On tapping the star icon, a star will be displayed next to the timestamp of the message, so you can easily make out the starred messages.
You can also remove the message from the starred list by just tapping and holding the message and selecting the crossed star icon that appears. The users can access the starred messages as and when they want easily. Starred messages can include text, audio, photos and videos as well.
WhatsApp for iOS got the message starring feature last month and now it’s time for Android users. If you want to give it a shot, you can download the APK and try out with the beta as it takes some time for the stable version to hit the Play Store.
