It seems that the developers of WhatsApp have been working on the iOS version of their application. The latest WhatsApp 2.17.50 version that has been released for iOS devices comes with improved chat search function and bug fixes.
We have to mention that this version of the application is found on the App Store. After installing the new WhatsApp version on your iOS device, you will notice how the “search messages” feature works in specific chats. We remind you that this feature has been available on Android OS for quite a while, but it seems that the developers of WhatsApp are not rushing when it comes to the iOS platform, especially since it is not as popular as Android.
The new WhatsApp 2.17.50 for iOS also comes with the ability to share any file on the application and also pin chats (up to three chats).
WhatsApp: Colorful Text Based Status
A few days ago WhatsApp has announced that colorful text-based Status feature is coming on both Android and iOS platforms. This means that from now on when you want to write a Status message on WhatsApp, you will be able to add a custom font to it, an emoji and also be able to change the background color.

WhatsApp: Features That Will Be Released Soon
Two new features are expected to be added to the WhatsApp application sometime soon, and these are UPI payments and the revoke button.
The UPI payments will allow you to make money transfers directly from the WhatsApp application. It is not sure how many banks will support this feature, but WhatsApp will surely try to get as many as possible. On the other hand, the revoke button will allow you to delete a message/video/photo that you’ve sent, but only if 5 minutes have not passed and if the receiver has not seen it.
