WhatsApp lets you search for unread messages
If you are in exchange with many contacts on WhatsApp at the same time, it can quickly happen that you lose track and have simply overlooked messages from certain people. WhatsApp has developed a simple solution for exactly this problem. In the new beta version of WhatsApp for Android you can now search for unread messages (Source: WABetaInfo).
So far, you can search for photos, videos, links, GIFs, audio files and documents in WhatsApp. If you are in the chat, you can also search for text passages. In the Chat Overview now has Unread added in Beta. This makes it easy to find unread messages that you might otherwise have missed. The function is also practical if you just want to see the contacts who have written to you. So you have the perfect overview of what is happening in the chat.
If you don’t feel like using WhatsApp anymore, here are the best alternatives:
When will the new WhatsApp feature be available?
If you’re using WhatsApp for Android in the beta version, then the feature is already there. I’ve already tried the unread feature in search and it works really well and usefully adds a new option to search. The feature will certainly also be available for iOS and other platforms such as WhatsApp Web when it is carried over to the final version of WhatsApp. It is not yet possible to say when that will be. Since the beta test is already running, it shouldn’t be long.
