How To Search Messages On WhatsApp By Date

WhatsApp is undoubtedly one of the most popular instant messaging apps that has been around for the longest time. Over the past couple of years, it has received a steady stream of significant updates that have made the user experience even better. One such feature that Meta decided to shadow-drop is the ability to search messages on the app by date. Yes, this feature has been available on other platforms, but it is now finally available on Android. It is really handy for people who need a certain message out that was sent or received on a specific date. In this post, we are going to teach you how to search for messages on WhatsApp by date.

You can now search messages on WhatsApp by date, and it’s one of the best features of the app

If you are wondering why this is such a big deal, then it is worth noting that the old-fashioned search for a message on WhatsApp can be tedious where you have to type in a word or a phrase and then look through the messages manually. It’s good if you remember the phrase exactly as it was sent or received, but if not, then you will spend a lot of time going through the messages without knowing what you are up to. The easier way? Just search Whatsapp messages by date, and you are good to go.

Now, if you want to search for messages on WhatsApp by date, I would suggest that you use the latest version of the app. Stable or not, it does not matter because the update is now rolling out to everyone. I have just received the feature on my app, which is on the stable channel. Follow the guide we have for you here, and you can get all the messages you want without any issues.

Step 1: Open WhatsApp and go to the chat from which you want to get the message.

Step 2: Once you are in the chat, tap the three-dot menu on the top-right.

Step 3: Tap Search once you get to the menu.

Step 4: Now you will get the usual overlay allowing you to search messages, but you’ll find a Calendar icon on the right side of the screen. Tap that.

Step 5: Tapping on the icon will bring up the full calendar. Simply input the date, and you will get all the messages sent and received from that date.

That’s it, folks. Once you have entered the desired date, you will be able to go ahead and get all the messages that you received or sent on that specific date. This feature works for both groups and individual chats, and if you are like me and good at dates, then you will have a much easier time searching the messages on WhatsApp by date.
