Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp has started rolling out a new feature to some beta testers on iOS, giving users the ability to search for messages by date.
The new feature allows users to easily jump to a certain date within a conversation, WABetaInfo reports.
Some beta testers can use this feature in their chats and groups, with the latest beta version of WhatsApp for iOS 126.96.36.199.
Users should use the search feature in a conversation if they want to check if the new feature has been rolled out to their account.
If a calendar icon appears, it means that the feature is enabled on your WhatsApp account.
The feature will roll out to more users in the coming weeks, according to the report.
Earlier this week, the messaging platform had launched the ‘forward media with captions’ feature on iOS, which gives users the ability to forward images, videos, GIFs, and documents, with a caption.
After downloading the WhatsApp for iOS 22.23.77 update from the App Store, some users were able to access the new feature.
Also, if someone doesn’t want to forward the caption, a dismiss button is provided to remove the caption from the image before forwarding the message.
