1. Check Message Read Status
Using this feature you can find old messages. Tap on it and type your search term followed by the Enter key. Use the arrows next to the search box to move to the next word. While you can use the above method to also search for links and documents, there is a separate search button for media. Now you may be wondering why two search buttons? The reason is simple Open the group and tap the top bar. Then, tap the Media label on the next screen. Tap on Documents or Links followed by the Search icon that appears at the top-right corner.
Enter the search term and WhatsApp will instantly find links or documents having that term. In addition to the above two search features, there is another search available in WhatsApp groups. We are talking about group member search. If a group consists of more than 50 people, it would be a tedious job to look for a particular person.
But, thankfully, you have member search feature to your rescue. To find a group member, open the group and tap the top bar. On the next screen, tap the small Search icon present next to the number of participants label. WhatsApp recently introduced the feature to add group descriptions. You can now add a small description to describe your current or new groups. Whether you are an admin or a normal member, you can modify the group description.
To add a group description, open the group and tap the top bar. Tap on Add group description. Then enter the description that you want to keep. Like other features, WhatsApp has made it easy to join groups. In situations like these, the admin can just share the invite link with other members who can then forward the link to more people. To create a link, open the Group info screen and tap the Invite via link option. On the next screen, choose the medium to share the link.
WhatsApp, by default, transfers the admin rights to a random member if the admin leaves the group. However, the admin can use this feature to transfer the rights to the person they trust. A pop-up menu will appear. Tap on Make group admin. To revoke admin rights, hold the admin's name and tap Dismiss as admin. We saved this one for the last. If you are part of annoying groups and don't want to receive their continuous messages, you can mute them.
