How to use the New Chat Filters on WhatsApp

Let’s admit it: We receive hundreds of messages on our WhatsApp account every day. Some of those messages mean a lot to us, and we don’t want to miss them. However, due to spam and important messages arriving in the same chat inbox, finding the most important one sometimes becomes a mess.

To deal with spam messages and message sorting problems, WhatsApp recently introduced a new chat filter. The filter lets you easily organize and shorten messages in chat.

The new chat filters are now available at the very top of the chat window and are divided into three sections: All, Unread, and Groups. This makes finding unread and group messages easy.

What are the new chat filters?

WhatsApp recently added three new chat filters: All, Unread, and Groups. These filters allow you to sort messages easily.

All: This will show you all of your chats and messages. This is the default chat filter used on WhatsApp.

Unread: The next one is Unread, which only shows messages marked as unread. If you’ve received a message that hasn’t been opened, it will show up here.

Groups: The last one is ‘Groups’, which lists all messages from the groups you’re part of on WhatsApp.
