After publishing the news about filtering businesses nearby for certain users at a later date, WhatsApp is now rolling out another feature for business accounts to let them filter search results using new options.
|Name of the feature?||Advanced Search Filters|
|Compatibility?||WhatsApp is releasing new advanced search filters for people that use the latest beta versions of WhatsApp Business beta for Android and iOS.|
|I’ve installed the latest beta but I don’t see these new search filters. Why?||Note that this feature is only available for WhatsApp Business. If you use WhatsApp Business and it’s not available, it means your WhatsApp account is not ready yet.|
|Thanks:||Sc for testing and reporting.|
|Previous news?||WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11: what’s new?|
WhatsApp is now releasing a new feature that let you filter your chats and messages using advanced search filters. When you search for your chats and messages, if the feature is already enabled for your WhatsApp Business account, there will be new options: Contacts, Non-contacts and Unread.
When you use these options, you can quickly view results that meet your condition, and you can even combine different conditions (for example, searching for photos from non-contacts).
Even if the screenshot has been taken on WhatsApp Business for Android, the same feature has been released on WhatsApp Business for iOS as well. Note again that this feature has been released only on WhatsApp Business beta, and WhatsApp is not planning to release it on WhatsApp Messenger, since they are more useful on WhatsApp Business. If you didn’t receive this feature, it means your WhatsApp account may receive it after updating WhatsApp Business in the next days or weeks.
