Now finding messages on WhatsApp is faster thanks to filters


As you know, WhatsApp is one of those applications that never stops innovating and improving. Today we are going to see the latest news from the green messaging platform, the arrival of the new chat filters in WhatsApp. These filters allow prioritize the chats that we are most interested in reading or respond in a matter of seconds.

The function of searching for messages by date recently arrived on WhatsApp and now the new filters arrive. It seems that someone within Meta wants renew the user experience of the app instant messaging.

The new filters are certainly a great way to find important conversations more efficiently. Additionally, the arrival of these filters marks the first time that we can segment conversations in the app between private chats and group chats. I think that in addition to helping ordinary WhatsApp users, this functionality will have a especially useful when we use WhatsApp for a business, which usually has dozens or hundreds of open chats.

Although you should know that this functionality may not yet be available for your device. Fairly This April will be when this function will be progressively launched to all compatible Android terminals. Surely by next month we will all have the new design that completes the recent change in the app's interface.

Now that this new functionality will be available, let's see how it works and how it can help us find the conversation we are looking for in a faster and simpler way.

How you can organize your chats on WhatsApp with the new filters

How to filter your contacts on WhatsApp

This chat filter functionality in WhatsApp currently has three different filter types with which to segment the chats that appear on the screen.

First of all we would have the standard option, which is what we have had all our lives. In this way we all messages will appear as they are now, as the latest messages have arrived and respecting the chat conversations pinned above.

On the other hand we have the unread filter. This filter is perfect for identifying which conversations require a response. Simply, if you click this option, WhatsApp would show you all unopened messages and those marked as unread. This way you will have the opportunity to see messages that we have had to answer for a long time and with a single touch of the finger.

And the last way to segment WhatsApp chats is through the option filter by groups. This option, which the community had been asking for for quite some time, allows you to see only the group chats in which we are added. When you need to review your groups, tap «Filters» > «Groups» and all your group chats will appear on the screen. Keep in mind that if you click on this filter, the community subgroups will also appear.

Personally, I believe that this change is organic and that it responds to the needs of many users who have up to hundreds of conversations and group chats on their WhatsApp. It is true that from time to time it is good to clean up the conversations we have in the app, but with the new chat filters in WhatsApp, it will now be easier to navigate through the different chats. And you, Were you waiting for the filters to arrive on WhatsApp?
