WhatsApp Launches New Search Function in The Settings Section

WhatsApp Launch New Search Function

Listen to the Podcast:

We are aware that WhatsApp is the most popular messaging application, so it is constantly introducing new features to enhance the user experience. Today, we have an innovation that will save time and make life simpler for many people. What is the latest? As it turns out, WhatsApp has just released a feature that enables you to filter options using a search tool in the settings, which is currently available to beta testers.

According to WABetaInfo, both the WhatsApp beta update for iOS 23.4.0.73 and the most recent WhatsApp beta update for Android 2.23.8.20 available on the Google Play Store include a new feature made available to some beta testers: “the ability to filter the application settings using the search bar.” This feature will make it much simpler to locate a particular option.

As shown on the screenshot, a search field will appear, into which you will simply input the desired option’s name to be taken directly to it.

WhatsApp is also working on a search filter for messages 

According to WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp beta update for iOS 22.19.0.73 has been released. WhatsApp was developing a new feature: the ability to browse for messages by date. This is a feature that has been anticipated by many, as it will make it simpler for users to navigate to a specific date within a conversation.

This feature was in development in 2020, but the social media company recently redeveloped it. Due to the latest WhatsApp iOS 22.24.0.77 beta update for the TestFlight app, some beta testers can now utilize this feature in their conversations and groups after a lengthy wait.

As seen in the screenshot below from WABetaInfo, in order to use the search function in a conversation, a calendar icon must be present. When this icon appears when you select the search button, it indicates that the function has been enabled for your WhatsApp account. If the calendar indicator does not appear, don’t panic; it will be made available to more users in the future, and at the end of this article, we’ll explain how to obtain it early.

This feature will enable you to quickly navigate to a specific date to view the messages shared within a particular conversation. Not only that, but you can also skip to the first message, so you won’t have to browse endlessly to locate the desired message.

Finally, it is important to note that this new function, which allows users to search for communications by date, has been made available to beta testers who installed the most recent beta update of the TestFlight application and will be rolled out to more users in the coming weeks. Eventually, it will be available to everyone, but for the time being, you can either wait or transition to WhatsApp’s beta version.
