WhatsApp Business has been widely used by businesses to sell their products online. They also use it to connect to their customers and answer their queries. So to enhance the user experience of WhatsApp Business, the company keeps testing and adding new features to its app. In the latest development, the company has been spotted testing advanced search filters in its beta program for both Android and iOS. The feature will help users search for chats with their contacts, non-contacts, or unread messages in one go.
According to a report from WABetaInfo, the popular WhatsApp beta tracker, WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature through an update to the beta version of WhatsApp Business. The new beta build reportedly brings three distinct search filters, viz. Contacts, Non-contracts, and Unread. These will allow users to filter their searches and easily find messages that they have received from their contacts, unknown numbers, or unread messages. They can also combine these filters with the existing conditions. For example, you can search for chats of your contacts who have sent a photo or a video.
WhatsApp Also Working on Enhancing the Upcoming Community Feature
Apart from the advanced search filters, WhatsApp is also spotted to be working on enhancing the upcoming community feature on WhatsApp Business. According to the WABetaInfo report, the messaging platform would create a group when users create a community. This feature is speculated to allow the community admins to send messages to all groups linked to their community. Moreover, the particular group may also have read-only access for everyone except group admins.
Recently, the Meta-owned messaging service was reported to be working on a feature to link groups to a community. This feature also appeared on both Android and iOS versions, though it hasn’t yet made it to the public build. Unfortunately, the company hasn’t yet revealed when the community feature will be made available to the larger public.
