In the article about the WhatsApp beta for iOS 18.104.22.168 update, we explained that WhatsApp was working on a new feature under development: the ability to search for messages by date. Thanks to this feature, it will be easier for users to jump to a certain date within a conversation. In reality, this feature was under development two years ago but WhatsApp only recently returned to develop it again.
Today, after releasing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.214.171.124 update on the TestFlight app, some beta testers can finally use this feature in their chats and groups!
