Messaging app WhatsApp has been testing a lot of features to enhance the user experience. The Facebook-owned messaging app recently rolled out the Advanced Search Mode for its Android beta testers. The feature has been in the works for the longest time but WhatsApp wants to fix all the bugs before rolling it out officially for all users.
“WhatsApp is finally rolling out, for certain beta testers, the Advanced Search Mode! Why certain beta testers? WhatsApp is actually enabling, from server-side, the feature for a few beta testers. This type of activation is partial and very slow: this happens when a company decides to gradually enable a feature to see the effects of it when enabled (crashes, bugs).”
