WhatsApp is working on a chat filter feature

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

WhatsApp has submitted a new update through the Google Play Beta Program for the Business app, bringing the version up to 2.18.84.
Analyzing the update, we have discovered a new feature WhatsApp is working on.
Let’s find out together what’s the feature ..


  • The Chat Filter feature is not available yet.
    WhatsApp is started to work on this specific sticker album feature in the 2.18.84 update, but the developers are keeping it disabled for development reasons and it will be enabled in next releases. So it’s okay if you have updated your WhatsApp Business version and you don’t see it, but probably it will be available very soon, also if we don’t precisely know the day.


Just yesterday, we have published news about the development of WhatsApp Business for iOS, showing the first Messaging Tool, and today we present a new feature for WhatsApp Business for Android.
In this beta update there are the first UI clues about the Chat Filter feature.
This feature will allow the user to quickly search messages, filtering them per unread chats, groups and broadcast lists.
Once the user tap Search, a Filter icon will be available.

Selecting it, the user will be able to choose where WhatsApp has to search messages in.

After this, you’re ready to search messages and WhatsApp will apply the filter.

This is a very useful feature, and at present there aren’t clues about the implementation in WhatsApp for Android (this seems an exclusive for WhatsApp Business).. and maybe it will be improved before the release, allowing to search in chats having specific Labels.
We will keep you updated.
