WhatsApp for iOS has introduced a new ‘Starred message’ feature which lets users bookmark a message in a chat so that they can find it later.
WhatsApp iOS users with version 2.12.7 will be able to see the new feature when they long-press on a message and a star will appear next to the message. To see the starred message separately, you need to go into chat info and there will be separate tab for Starred messages inside the tab.
Pressing on the star, will let a user bookmark the message in a chat. The option can be particularly useful for group chats, in a case a user quickly wants to scroll down to a particular message.
Currently the option is available only on iOS and WhatsApp should roll it out to Android and Windows Phone soon. WhatsApp currently has 900 million monthly users worldwide.
