It is estimated that the popular connectivity application WhatsApp has now over 1.3 billion worldwide users that include over 200 million daily active WhatsApp users. In an attempt to maintain its huge userbase and improve users overall experience, the developers are always trying to improve the platform by keeping on adding new features to its app for both iOS and Android. The Facebook-owned platform is expected to soon incorporate dark mode, WhatsApp group invitation, fingerprint lock for chats, consecutive voice messages feature and also a new way to check WhatsApp Status.
WhatsApp is planning to add an ‘Advanced Search’ mode as well, which will make it easier for users who use WhatsApp’s ‘Search’ feature every day to find text messages or chats. With the ‘Advance search’ feature, the user will be able to search multiple types of messages, and Wabetainfo reports. The report suggests that WhatsApp will add a ‘Media’ Window, which will allow users to search between Photos, GIFs, Videos, Documents, Links and Audio.
For instance, when a user taps on any media file, Photos, WhatsApp will show all messages that include an image. The cited source says that ‘Media’ window shows “how many media files are stored in your WhatsApp Storage, so your results can be now filtered by media.” One will also be able to check their Search History, which can be deleted by tapping on ‘Clear’ option.
