On the very recent basis, WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that will make it easier for users to navigate the settings section on the iOS version of the app. Over the years, the Meta-owned messaging application, WhatsApp has added several new features and options this year that grants permission to the users to customize its functionality and their privacy settings. The search bar can help them in searching for specific settings, instead of combing through all of the options on WhatsApp.
It has been witnessed by the whole team of WhatsApp that a new search bar for the settings section is now available to beta testers on the latest version of WhatsApp for iOS. It should already be available to users who are processing and using WhatsApp for iOS beta version 126.96.36.199. But the feature tracker is depicting that testers on other 23.4.0 builds must be able to see the new search bar.
The search bar is available at the top of the user’s profile image on the settings page. Users can type in specific words like “Photo” to visualize the settings options under Storage and Data or Privacy, especially for their profile photo, or type “Notification” to see settings that are directly related to the chat and group chat notifications sounds and vibration options.
The feature is helpful for elderly users, or users who have just begun to make use of the app in finding some commonly used settings easily. The current users have to spend a few minutes over browsing through the settings so that they can find out the right toggle or option.
