To star and save messages on the WhatsApp mobile app, long-press on the message you want to save. A menu will pop up, and one of the options will be to star it. Select that. On the desktop app, move your mouse to the right of the message, and a downwards arrow will appear.
Click the arrow, and the same menu will appear. Select Star message. To star a message on WhatsApp mobile, long-press the message you want to save. A few seconds later, a menu will pop up. Tap on Star. Once done you’ll now see a small star appear on the message.
