In the latest version update for iOS, WhatsApp is enabling users to filter out their chats on the Meta-owned messenger, WABetaInfo reported.

The "filter chats" feature has been made available to some beta testers after WhatsApp submitted the update through the TestFlight beta Program, bringing the version up to 23.25.10.76. It will soon be released to more users.

Using the new feature, the users would be able to quickly identify and access specific types of conversations based on their preferences, improving the user experience.

The screenshot here shows that WhatsApp is introducing a fresh filter row to provide users with new actions.

As per the WhatsApp news tracker, the app offers enhanced functionality so that users can easily manage their conversations. They are also allowing users to retrieve a list of unread chats that would make it easier for them to choose which messages they want to respond to.

"Users also have the option to filter their chats exclusively to display those from their contacts, further enhancing the customisation and organisation of their messaging experience," said WABetaInfo.

Users can also get a list of group chats, which will let them manage and engage on a priority basis.

WhatsApp keeps improving the user experience and this new feature would give users more control over conversations. Those who install the latest update of WhatsApp beta for iOS will be able to use this feature.
