WhatsApp’s new search bar will now offer a different view 2024

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps, whose developers are constantly rolling out new and upcoming features through the beta channel.

The app introduced a similar feature a few weeks ago, a search bar for the Chats tab, which will help users find a specific message from a long list of conversations.

While the new search bar was added with WhatsApp beta version 2.24.7.1, it has not yet made its widespread appearance to all users. But now this is being changed, with a prominent search bar appearing in the chats tab along with devices.

Users managed to find this under-development search bar in the WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.24.6.77, which first debuted in early March. This makes it clear that the search bar is being tested across multiple app versions, indicating that it’s here to stay.

A side-by-side comparison of the search bar that first appeared in WhatsApp beta version 2.24.7.1 shows that the new implementation still needs some work. The fact that part of the search bar is absorbed by the dark green header tells us that it’s not fully optimized yet.
