WhatsApp has been coming up with a string of new features in this year. Starting from the introduction of WhatsApp Payments to confirming a soon-to-be-rolled-out group video calling feature, WhatsApp has constantly come up with ways for its users to gain more out of it than what just a chat platform can offer. Now, the Facebook-owned chat app is reportedly going to bring more features for its business users within its WhatsApp for Business app.

As per reports, a new feature will be available on the version 2.18.84 of the WhatsApp for Business app that will let the users filter their chats from the search bar. The move is aimed to make it easier for businesses using the platform to connect with their consumers, to pinpoint chats which they want to address. The WhatsApp for Business chat filter icon will appear on the search bar of the app and will allow the users to filter their list of chats based on read or unread, groups as well as broadcast lists.
