WhatsApp, the instant messaging network owned by Meta, has gotten a stable upgrade for iPhone users. iOS users may now search for messages by date. This update is now available on the Apple App Store for iOS users. The latest upgrade allows users to drop and drag photos, movies, and other material from other applications into the Meta-owned app and share them in WhatsApp chats with other users. Some users have already gotten the update, and it is likely to be sent out to all iOS users soon.

On the Apple App Store, the instant messaging network WhatsApp and the voice-over-IP platform have released the newest version with the build number 23.1.75. Users will be able to search for and discover specific media in chat conversations by date. Furthermore, the update will provide drag-and-drop functionality between other applications for documents, photographs, and videos that the user wants to share via WhatsApp.

It is worth noting that the update is now only visible to a subset of users. The update is likely to be handed out to all iOS users soon.

Meanwhile, the Meta-owned messaging programme WhatsApp may soon enable users to exchange original-quality photographs with other friends. Pictures transmitted over WhatsApp are now compressed, resulting in blurry images. However, WaBetaInfo reports that the corporation is working on the ability to share photographs in their original quality.

WaBetaInfo is a website that tracks forthcoming WhatsApp features.

The capability was spotted in the WhatsApp beta for the Android 2.2.3.2.11 upgrade. According to the source, the messaging app intends to add a new setting icon to the drawing tool header. Users will be able to modify image quality, including their original quality, using the new icon. This will offer them more control over the shot quality.

The new WhatsApp feature is presently in the works. It is scheduled to be released in a future update. WhatsApp is reportedly pushing out the option to blacklist people within the conversation list and from alerts. According to reports, the app would include two more access points to ban users.
