  • Type the name of the contact
  • WhatsApp will now filter the call log and show you the call history with the corresponding contact if necessary.

Someone sent you a link that you can’t find anymore? Or a classmate sent you some information that you can’t find anymore. Of course, you can also search the content of messages within WhatsApp. This is how it works:

  • Open WhatsApp
  • Stay in the chat overview and now tap on the magnifying glass icon
  • An input line opens
  • Type the word you are looking for and all chats with messages containing the search word wil be displayed.
  • Again, you can search by name or by keywords that you remember. Searching for the word “bist” will certainly show a lot of chats. So you should define the search term precisely.
