There are WhatsApp groups in which hardly a second passes without space between messages, groups in which there is so much talk that it is almost impossible to remember what was said the day before. And of course, locating specific messages is an almost daunting task: even though they can be searched by the words they contain, it is often a nuisance to scroll through the results until you locate the needle in the haystack. With the latest news this process is simplified.
Locate messages filtering by dates
Until now, WhatsApp allowed you to search conversations from the menu options on Android and group or contact information on iPhone and Android, always in a simple way: the only option included was the search box and two arrows to facilitate movement between results. With the latest beta of WhatsApp for iPhone, the platform includes a filter that makes the search task much easier and more powerful.
With the search filter it is much easier to locate specific WhatsApp messages, especially in crowded groups. Once the search options are accessed from the chat information, the app places a small calendar icon on the right for the user to filter by days, months and years.
With the search filter it is possible to find the messages that were sent on the chosen days: WhatsApp allows you to go directly to the dates just by selecting them from the calendar. It is a very comfortable way to jump in time without having to scroll the conversation window manually.
The novelty has reached WhatsApp, but for now only in the iPhone beta. It is expected that it will land shortly within the Android beta, after which it will reach the relevant stable versions. Seems like a minor change but, under our testing, the truth is that it has been really usefulespecially in groups that accumulate a huge amount of messages.
