Google Chat gets advanced search functionality with new filters


Google chat is receiving a new set of features for its search filters. After the failed attempt of successfully running a messaging app, Google Hangouts was turned to Google Chat, which found its user base in Google Workplace. And with useful updates like this platform's future look promising.

The features are already started to roll out and will be available on iOS and the web by the end of July 2021. The new filters rule will make the search of the chat easier including the file names and content of the message.

Users can select from various options to filter the chats like specific conversations, dates, find people in groups, names from links and files. These features will only be available for Google workplace and G Suite customers.


The UI of the app is also pretty simple with self-explanatory filter options and can be quite useful at times with this amount of advanced search options.
