Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp has started to roll out a new feature to some beta testers on iOS, which gives users the ability to search messages by date.
The new feature allows users to easily jump to a certain date within a conversation, reports WABetaInfo.
Some beta testers can use this feature in their chats and groups, with the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 184.108.40.206 update.
Users need to use the search feature in a conversation if they want to check whether the new feature has been rolled out to their account.
If a calendar icon shows up, it means the feature is enabled on your WhatsApp account.
The feature will roll out to more users over the coming weeks, the report said.
Earlier this week, the messaging platform had launched the ‘forward media with caption’ feature on iOS, which provides users the ability to forward images, videos, GIFs and documents, with a caption.
After downloading the WhatsApp for iOS 22.23.77 update from the App Store, some users were able to access the new feature.
Additionally, if someone does not want to forward the caption, a dismiss button is provided to remove the caption from the image before forwarding the message.
