The WhatsApp search feature is not the best solution, and if you are someone who uses WhatsApp to entertain in groups with hundreds of chats every day It is extremely difficult to search for something specific.
In recent weeks, the WhatsApp team has tried to improve its in-app search feature with some discreet changes to the hood, but a larger feature may be in the works.
According to a report of WABetaInfo the popular messaging service has begun work on a new "Advanced Search" feature for users. The feature is currently being developed for iOS, but sources closely following the progress state that the feature will also be available to Android users.
However, the report indicates that the feature is at a very native stage. Reasons associated with the development of the feature may not immediately be displayed to all iOS beta users. The advanced search could take a few weeks to see a broader, stable rollout.
An official beta program for iOS was never available to anyone, as it was always limited to a few users. WABetaInfo noted, however, that WhatsApp had unexpectedly opened its public beta program and was available to all iOS users for a while.
However, at the time of writing this report, the beta program on Testflight is full.
