It’s one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, and now WhatsApp is set to get an exciting new feature.
The messaging platform is developing an ‘Advanced Search’ feature, according to WABetaInfo .
While WhatsApp already has a basic Search feature that allows you to find messages and chats, the Advanced Search mode will be much more helpful than the current version.
Advanced Search will let you filter your search, whether you’re looking for photos, links, audio, documents, GIFs or videos.
The feature will also show your Search History.
WABetaInfo explained: “If you tap a media file, for example Photos, WhatsApp will show all messages that contain an image!”
Thankfully, your history an also be easily deleted, using a ‘Clear’ button.
Your search results will also include a preview, meaning there’s no need to open the search result in order to see it.
Sadly for Android users, Advanced Search is currently only being developed for WhatsApp’s iOS platform.
However, WABetaInfo added that it will come to Android, it just remains unclear when.
