WhatsApp Adds Search (group members) To It's Latest Update

Popular IM platform WhatsApp has added "search" for group members which now allows group admins and members to quickly search for a member instead of scrolling down the list of members in that particular group to locate him or her.

This update is coming just a weeks after WhatsApp rolled out the delete/revoke features which lets users delete messages/chats sent in error.

Note this search features is another update added to WhatsApp beta for Android 2.17.407. and we will expect global roll out in few days time.

The WhatsApp search feature will be available to all WhatsApp groups with 10 or more members in it. You can access it when you click on a group and go to list of members section. It's just located on top of members names. So instead of scrolling down and up in search of a particular member, all you need to do is just type the name in the search box and it will appear.

This feature will actually make WhatsApp more interesting and easier to manage but note that Telegram already have this feature. Telegram also supports groups that accommodates up to 30,000 members as against WhatsApp's 256 members. Apart from that, Telegram boasts of more interesting features that whatsapp is yet to add.

Meanwhile, to enjoy this latest Whatsapp features, you should be looking out for latest updates on Playstore and update your WhatsApp to get it.
