droidsnipe.com, Jakarta – WhatsApp has announced that it is currently testing a new feature. This time WhatsApp developed the Filter feature to simplify the chat search process. The Filter feature for this chat has been rolled out by WhatsApp since last year.
This feature is available for Android, iOS, and desktop but cannot be accessed by regular WhatsApp users. Now this feature is prepared for WhatsApp users not only for business users.

However, at this time the feature is still in the development stage but WABetaInfo has already shared a snippet.
From the screenshots uploaded by WABetaInfo, it appears that there is a new icon on the right side of the search menu.
If selected, the icon will display four categories of chat, namely unread messages, from contacts, from non-contacts, and groups.
Users can choose one of the four categories after entering the keywords they want to search for.

Unlike for business WhatsApp accounts, the filter icon will appear if the user opens the search bar.
As for the standard account, the account has been moved to the front so that it can be accessed when not looking for chats and messages.
Furthermore, this feature will also be available for WhatsApp beta Android and iOS in a future update.
This filter feature is already available in WhatsApp beta UWP version 2.2216.4.0 which was released some time ago.
