How can you keep the results of your search in WhatsApp on iPhone?
To be able to keep the results of your search on WhatsApp from your iPhone, you must take into account that there are two very simple ways and the only ones that are accessible, since there is no way that in the search engine as such, the words you searched for remain.
This is because it is not a search engine like Google or any other application such as Instagram or Facebook, however, the two options are as follows.
The first way to keep the search results, is going to be highlighting the messages that are most important to us in the chat, you just have to, open the chat, find the message then leave it pressed.
Finally click on the star that appears and ready, in this way you can highlight the messages you want in some important chat of your WhatsApp, this way is quite similar to the one that Android has to highlight messages.
The second way to keep the search results, is a bit external, since it goes a little outside the WhatsApp application, and it is to take screenshots, the chat and the conversation you want in which you will find the messages you want to save.
You just have to enter the chat you want, go to the part of the conversation where are the messages or the message you want to save, and simply take a screenshot, and ready this will be saved on your mobile, specifically in your gallery or reel.
For when you need to see these messages you will know that you will have it saved in your images and if you do not want it to be deleted remember to upload this image to the cloud so that it is always safe, remember that you can also save the screenshots of the video calls if necessary.
