    How do you find messages by date?

A new feature on WhatsApp allows users to search messages by date. Users can easily jump to a certain date within a conversation with the new feature. Some people can use this feature in their chats and groups with the latest update. Moreover, if users want to check if the new feature has been rolled out to their account, they need to use the search feature. The feature is on your account if the calendar icon shows up.

Over the coming weeks, the feature will be rolled out to more users. The ‘forward media with caption’ feature on the messaging platform was launched earlier this week and allows users to forward images with a caption.
