WhatsApp to launch 'Chat Filter': Here's how it will work
Following a slew of updates ranging from in-app video support for Facebook and Instagram to new stickers and group calling features, WhatsApp is now working to introduce another handy feature. Called 'Chat Filter', this new WhatsApp tool will allow users to quickly search through their messages, filtering them per unread chats, groups and broadcast lists. However, this feature is currently not available for everyone.

'Chat Filter' has been spotted in a new update through the Google Play Beta Program for WhatsApp Business for Android version 2.18.84. However, there aren't many details about the implementation of this feature in WhatsApp for Android as it may be exclusive to WhatsApp Business.
