WhatsApp will bring new search features to the Messenger app

Last week, WhatsApp started testing nearby features that made it easy for users to find restaurants, grocery stores right in the Messenger app and now it plans to bring more advanced search features.

In the latest update to the WhatsApp Beta app (both iOS and Android), the company introduced three new options for users to search chats and messages – Contacts, Uncontacted, and Unread. , reported WABetaInfo, a reliable WhatsApp. community blog.

For now, the aforementioned features are being tested for work accounts on WhatsApp. This will help them find the details and given the number of customers they are reaching out to, it is difficult to keep track of all messages and there is a risk that you will not be able to see a large order from loyal customers.

With the Unread option, people like in Google Gmail can see all unread messages in one frame and also eliminate non-unimportant messages and focus only on responding to customers.

This is a very good value added feature and I hope it will also be introduced for regular WhatsApp for individuals.

In a related development, WhatsApp is testing to bring profile pictures as well as notifications on the phone’s lock screen.

With just the name, there was a chance to ignore the post and see it later. But with the photo, there will be less chance of ignoring the message.
