WhatsApp introduced the “WhatsApp Channels Feature” to the service a few months ago. Channels are a private way to follow your interests; they resemble Telegram in many ways. According to a statement from Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Pakistan is now a part of the service’s global reach. It has only been accessible in eight nations before.
According to WABetaInfo, the well-known messaging software WhatsApp is releasing a new feature for its desktop version as part of an ongoing effort to enhance the user experience.
By introducing the “search message by date” option to a select group of beta testers soon, the Meta-owned messenger will make it simpler to find messages shared on the app on a specific date. With the use of a date filter, users can easily search for messages within their discussions, thanks to this new functionality.

“Thanks to this feature, WhatsApp would have offered users a more efficient and convenient way to navigate through their message history when searching for messages,” the news tracker for WhatsApp stated.
The improved search features will make it easier to locate any communication from a particular date or to get crucial details about an earlier incident.
WhatsApp is introducing a new search feature for its desktop app.
As demonstrated in this screenshot, users can search messages from a certain day by selecting a date from the date picker panel that appears when they click the calendar button, which becomes available after the update. However, the functionality will only be accessible to a select group of beta testers who have the most recent version of WhatsApp Web at first. Over the next few days, more users will be able to access it.
According to WABetaInfo, it is now possible to swiftly find messages from a specific day thanks to the addition of the date-based search tool.
“This not only saves time but also reduces the frustration of scrolling through long chat histories.”
More precisely, the capability will come in handy when searching for non-text messages—voice notes, for example—which are difficult to find since they cannot be searched for—or when users can’t remember how exactly to phrase a text message.
