Whats App is currently working on a new feature that will improve its chat search function
Advanced Search will improve the standard search tool within Whats App, allowing users to search through multiple types of messages. Users will also be able to filter their search by document, photos, GIFs, videos, , links, and audio, and the interface will reflect how many media files are stored in WhatsApp’s storage. Search history will also be stored in the application and can be deleted at the press of a button. This new functionality will be made accessible to any iOS Testflight beta programme members in future iOS updates. Android will be launched later in the year.
