WhatsApp Finally Getting Better Search & Storage Management Features
Muhammad Mubeen Javed
WhatsApp is getting a couple of big features to make it easier to use. The platform is going to make managing media files and search engines easier.
The new feature “Search by Date” will allow users to search for messages from a specific date. This feature will be added to the in-chat search functionality. Now WhatsApp only offers a “Search by Phrase” option.
Another feature WABetaInfo talks about is file storage management. IM application is working on a couple of storage tools. It will allow users to find media files easily. These tools will be accomplished by a redesigned storage usage section as well.
This section will allow users to search for forwarded files and segregate relatively larger files. It will provide default actions like Oldest, Newest, and Size under the sort button. This will make freeing up storage much easier.
These two features are in the early stages of development. They are still not available to WhatsApp bets users. According to WABetaInfo, the features will receive some improvements before becoming mainstream.
