WhatsApp

The world’s most widely used instant messaging software, WhatsApp, has completely changed how people interact with one another. Users now have the option to search messages by date on the messaging network owned by Meta, which has begun to roll out another new feature to some beta testers on iOS. With the most recent WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.24.0.77 upgrade, some beta testers can utilise this capability in their chats and groups.

How Does the New Feature Work

Users will find it simpler to travel to a certain date within a message, thanks to the new WhatsApp functionality. If a calendar icon displays in the chat box, users will be able to use the search feature within a conversation. It means that their WhatsApp account has the feature activated. Users can hop to a date to see which messages have been exchanged inside a conversation in addition to being able to jump to the initial message in a chat. The calendar icon won’t be visible to everyone because the new feature is only accessible to a select group of WhatsApp iOS beta testers.

The report also mentioned that just a small number of iOS beta testers who downloaded the most recent beta version of the TestFlight app were allowed to use the message search by date feature. Over the next few weeks, more people will gradually get access to this service.

WhatsApp Recent Updates

The messaging app had earlier this week introduced the “forward media with caption” option for iOS, allowing users to send documents, movies, GIFs, and photographs with captions. Some users had access to the new functionality after downloading the WhatsApp for iOS 22.23.77 update from the App Store. A dismiss button is also offered so that the caption can be removed from the image before the message is forwarded if the user decides they do not want to forward it.

A number of other new features, including Communities, Message Yourself, and in-chat Polls, have recently been made available for users of the well-known messaging software for Android, iOS, and PC.
