Following the recent announcement of home and mentions in Google Chat, we’re excited to introduce starred on web, an additional shortcut in the redesigned navigation panel that helps you stay on top of your most important messages in Chat.
Why you’d use it
This feature enables you to “star” any messages in Chat for easy access via the starred shortcut in the navigation panel, and can be useful when you need to come back to a message later.
Starring messages is unavailable in existing spaces organized by conversation topic (legacy threaded).
Admins: There is no admin control for this feature. End users:To star a message, hover over the message and click the star icon or click on the three dot overflow menu to display the star option.You can unstar a message from the original message or unstar messages from the shortcut. Starred messages will be available on mobile in 2024. Visit the Help Center to learn how to star messages in Chat.
