In the background, WhatsApp is developing a few new features. Some of the future improvements include the option to search by date and ShareChat integration, according to reputable WhatsApp-related source WABetaInfo.
Search by Date
The functionality will allow you to filter and search messages from a specific date, as its name suggests.
a functionality that has long been available in well-known WhatsApp rivals like Telegram.
Once the feature is available, WhatsApp will display a new Calendar icon in the in-chat Search page. You can filter the messages by selecting a date by tapping the calendar icon, which will show a date picker. Washington Beta Info
Although WABetaInfo discovered the feature on iOS, we could anticipate that the business will also make it available on Android. But keep in mind that neither of the platforms has the feature live just yet.
The native playback of videos from the in-house social media platform ShareChat will soon be supported by WhatsApp. With this update, you won’t need to exit WhatsApp in order to watch ShareChat videos. Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube inline video playback are already supported by the messaging app.
Storage Use Redesign
It is clear from one of the photographs posted by WABetaInfo that the business will also include PiP support. When WhatsApp introduces the feature, both iOS and Android users will have access to it.
Additionally, WhatsApp wants to clean up the Storage usage area. Large files and Forwarded files will be divided into their own parts. Yes, you can now quickly and easily mass erase all of those obnoxious forward images and videos. Washington Beta Info
Clear Except Starred
You have the choice to sort by newest, oldest, and size once you’re in one of these new categories.
Additionally, it appears that WhatsApp will let you erase any conversation messages except than those that have been highlighted. This can let you delete conversation history while maintaining a backup of all important communications. Washington Beta Info
Search Image on Web for iOS
In the updated Storage Use section, the business will also provide the option to delete all media save for starred communications.
Although WhatsApp beta users have the option to validate sent messages by conducting a web search, the firm now wants to make this feature available for photographs. You might be able to tell whether a stock photo has been edited or whether it is an older photo that is only being used to cause mayhem at trying times. Washington Beta Info
New Chat Bubble Color in Dark Mode
In case you’re not aware, the Search Messages on Web tool conducts a fast Google search to provide you with a brief background for evaluating the credibility of the forwarded message.
Whatsapp finally included dark mode, although dark mode enthusiasts would not approve of the entire colour scheme. In an effort to make things right, it appears that the corporation is testing a new, lighter shade of green (seen below). Washington Beta Info
Although I’m not overly fond of the new chat bubble’s hue, it does appear better than the dark green WhatsApp now utilises.
