Starring a message within Messages saves the text into a special section of the app so you can pull it up again in the blink of an eye anytime, with next to no active thought or effort.

And once you remind yourself how to do it, it’ll take you literally two seconds to pull off.

➜ Just open up any thread within the Google Messages app on your phone (and make sure you’re actually using the Google Messages app, not the same-named equivalent Samsung still insists on sticking on its phones for some reason). Then:

Press and hold your finger onto any individual message to select it.
Tap the star icon at the top of the screen.
