WhatsApp continues to be the most popular messaging application in Spain. Although it is true that applications like Telegram are updated more frequently, the popular messaging application also receives news constantly.
The usual thing, that if, is that these novelties come first to beta versions. One of the most anticipated features is the advanced search button, which is starting to roll out to WhatsApp beta users. What does this button consist of and what is its difference with the search that we already had?
WhatsApp begins to deploy the advanced search in beta
Following the launch of the latest beta, some users are starting to receive a new WhatsApp feature, as WABetaInfo points out. This feature is an advanced search button.
To this day, when we press the search button we only have the option to search for text. This changes with the advanced search system, which allows us to search for all kinds of elements within our WhatsApp history. The specific list that allows us to perform the advanced WhatsApp search is:
These search categories appear as marked boxes, and when you press one of them it will appear in the search box itself marked in red, clearly indicating that what we are looking for is an image and not something else. Similarly, if we do not select any category we can search for text as we did in previous versions.
In order to test the advanced search, you must have the latest beta version of the application installed, although this is not a guarantee that you can test it. At the moment, WhatsApp is deploying from its servers, so even if you have the beta you may have to wait a few hours or days.
