WhatsApp is working on an Advanced Search feature According to WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp Advanced Search feature has been spotted in iOS beta.

While WhatsApp is still working on the feature, it is not available for everyone who has registered for the iOS beta program.

The feature will give users the ability to make more refined searches in their chats.

This means that you will be able to search through your chats more acutely to find pictures, GIFs, audio files, documents and more.

Currently, users can only search for text within messages.

How the new WhatsApp Advanced Search feature will help users?

# The advanced search window will also maintain a previously searched keyword history and even show previews for what you search.

# For instance, searching for a specific keyword within photos will return all images from all individual chats and groups, with results for photos only.

# This move will be very useful for those who regularly use WhatsApp for workplace communication.

# It means if you’re someone who uses WhatsApp to converse on groups with hundreds of chats every day, it does become extremely difficult to look for something specific.

# A big draw for apps such as Slack are its productivity-based discoverability of documents, images, and clips.

# Adding this search feature will help WhatsApp enter the professional realm by offering better search filters.

Notably

As per the report, this feature will also launch for the Android version of WhatsApp later this year.
