Good afternoon friends.
Today we will talk about the functionality that you will be able to use soon enough: search function in the messages.
The search function helps you quickly and easily find not only messages, but also photos, videos, links, GIFs, audio and documents in chats. This function is indispensable in chats that were created a long time ago and have been in active correspondence since then. Until now, you had to scroll through the history in search of the desired messages, but now it will be enough to click on the search button in any chat and enter the text you are looking for. In the search results, you will receive not only messages, but also the names of files (documents, pictures, links) that have been published in the chat.
All search results will be sorted in the chat by the date the message was sent. And the segment of text in which matches are found will be additionally highlighted with a contrasting color.
There is a small specificity for the work of search in chats, which were created before the day of the release of the search functionality: the processing of the first request may take some time (about 10 seconds). Any subsequent search request will be processed instantly.
The release of the functionality on Android and Web platforms is scheduled for February 17. iOS users will receive the update a little later.
Stay tuned for the latest news!
