WhatsApp launches a new advanced search button

WhatsApp's new advanced search menu launched | TechBriefly

WhatsApp continues to be the most popular messaging application in Spain. Although applications such as Telegram are indeed updated more frequently, the popular messaging application also constantly receives news.

The usual thing, that is, is that this news arrives first in the beta versions. One of the most anticipated features is the advanced search button, which is starting to roll out to beta WhatsApp users. What is this button and what is its difference with the search we already had?

WhatsApp starts rolling out the advanced search in beta
After the launch of the latest beta, some users are beginning to receive a new WhatsApp feature, as pointed out by WABetaInfo. This function is an advanced search button.

To this day, when we press the search button we only have the option to search for text. This changes with the advanced search system, which allows us to search for all kinds of elements within our WhatsApp history. The specific list that allows us to perform the advanced WhatsApp search is:


  • Photos.
  • Videos.
  • Links.
  • GIFs.
  • Audio.
  • Documents.

These search categories appear as marked boxes, and when you press one of them it will appear in the search box itself marked in red, clearly indicating that what we are looking for is an image and not something else. In the same way, if we do not select any category we can search for text as we did in previous versions.

To test the advanced search, you must have the latest beta version of the application installed, although this is not a guarantee that you will be able to test it. At the moment, WhatsApp is deploying from its servers, so even if you have the beta you may have to wait a few hours or days.
