WABetaInfo also noted that iOS users will soon be able to search messages by dates. WhatsApp version or higher will let users search WhatsApp messages of specific dates. There will be a calendar icon inside the search option for a chat. Taping on the calendar icon will let users jump to a date for specific messages sent on the day.

The ability to search messages by dates is only available to some lucky beta testers.

These features are only for limited beta testers. If the company gets good results in tests, it will release these features in stable versions of WhatsApp.

Recently WhatsApp introduced an option to message yourself. This feature provides users the ability to send notes, reminders, and shopping lists.
