WhatsApp is reportedly testing chat filters features for all users

Meta’s own instant messaging platform WhatsApp is continuously working on several new features to give its users a better experience. As per recent reports, the company is testing a few latest chat filters feature for all users. WhatsApp is going to roll out this feature specifically for those users who are using WhatsApp business accounts. This latest chat filters feature will make its users able to manage several chats much more effectively. The new chat filters feature will roll out for Android, iOS, and Desktop users and enable them to search chats more rapidly, according to a report by WABetaInfo. There will be several options with this feature, like contacts, groups, non-contacts, and unread chats. When users choose one of these options, WhatsApp will only show chats on their screen related to that option. It will help users to navigate more quickly.  The same report further added that,  “As you can see in this screenshot, the filter button is visible to business accounts when tapping the search bar on Desktop: thanks to this feature, WhatsApp makes it easier to search for unread chats, contacts, non-contacts, and groups.”Moreover, the company is also expected to let the normal WhatsApp account use this chat filters feature in the next update of the application. However, there will be a difference in that the filter button is going to be always visible even in the case users are not looking for chats and messages, the reports additionally stated. Here is the screenshot of this recent WhatsApp chat filters feature. The screenshot shows how these filters are going to look once the company implements them.  However, the recent chat filters feature is in beta, and for the time being, only WhatsApp Desktop beta v2.2216.40 users can use it. The company is expected to roll out this feature with other features such as rapid replies and detection of ‘legal’ names of those who have authorized UPI payments in the application to stable versions soon.
