You don’t have to scroll through the entire conversation to find old messages: WhatsApp’s search tool helps you find media files and keywords sent in all WhatsApp conversations. The resource can browse the entire message history of the account to bring up the contents.

To find some text or keyword, you can use WhatsApp’s general search or search individually in each chat. The first option brings the results found in all conversations and groups in the app, while the second allows a more direct search. In addition, the messenger allows you to locate media files, such as photos, videos, links, GIFs, audios, documents and polls.
On the other hand, WhatsApp search still does not allow you to filter the search by date. To find all historical results, it is recommended to use the function on your cell phone, as the web version limits the amount of old messages that can be accessed.
