New WhatsApp Beta reveals Advanced Search Option, Automatic Downloads & Secure Backups


During these days, apps are launching too many features specifically to fight COVID-19 Pandemic. WhatsApp is also helping its users during these pressing times. However this time the feature is not related to coronavirus. It seems like the social media app is trying to make the overall experience better for its users and want to deviate their attention to other things. For this, a new WhatsApp Beta for Android is revealed, and it is offering some great features.

Advance Search Mode Feature:

As the name suggests, this feature will provide ease when it comes to searching for media including videos, GIFs, links and audios that are sent by someone in messages. This feature is not developed yet for Android users, but iOS users are already enjoying it. The company has not officially announced that time when this feature will be rolled out for Android users as well.

Last but not least: here comes the more secure password-protected backup option. The feature to backup your chat history is already available for WhatsApp users and the data is saved to Google Drive, but with the new update, you will be able to protect your backups with a password. However, the password will not be stored on Google Drive, neither will it be synced to Facebook’s servers, so if you forget it, you won’t be able to access your data.

When this feature launches, it will make our lives extremely easy by helping us searching for messaging quickly, and it also saves our precious time.
