Star favorite conversations in Google Groups

Quick launch summary 

You can now mark conversations as favorites in new Google Groups. To mark an item as a favorite, simply click the star icon. You can access starred conversations from the left-hand navigation menu, making them quick and easy to find. When you star an item, it appears as a favorite in your account only. It doesn't appear as a favorite for anyone else. 

This feature was available in classic Groups, but until now it was not available in new Groups. Learn more about new Groups and the transition from classic Groups
