WhatsApp continues to update itself constantly and to bring features that can improve the user experience. The popular instant messaging app is testing the possibility of search for messages by date. The indiscretion comes from the colleagues of WABetaInfo, always careful to find the latest news hidden among the beta versions.

For the moment, the test seems to affect the version for iOS but it is not excluded that it may also be intended for Android devices. WhatsApp already supports searching based on a specific word, but it may soon be possible to select a precise date. From the search bar, the calendar icon should appear from where we can select the day that interests us. By starting the search, the results will show the conversations that took place on that date.


However, the feature is still in the alpha phase of experimentation. Therefore, it is difficult to predict the timing of the launch without excluding the fact that it could present itself in different guises when it is actually released.

As you'd expect, searching by date isn't the only feature under testing. In addition to a possible better organization of the files received on WhatsApp, the team would be working for introduce new functions for deleting messages. In practice, after selecting the messages it will be possible to choose whether to delete the selected ones or delete all except those selected by us. Again, we don't know when the feature will be available.

The satisfying Realme 6 is also available for purchase on Amazon at less than 270 euros. .
