WHATSAPP is preparing a massive change that will radically tidy up messages once and for all.

Leaked screenshots suggest the platform is finally working on a way to filter different chats.

It’s something fans have long-requested, after Business accounts were given a similar feature last year.

A future update will apparently provide a new filter button at the top of WhatsApp.

When tapping it, you’re presented with four options.

Unread chats, contacts, non-contacts and groups.

The feature is a dream come true for those who are bombarded with messages on a regular basis from various friends, family and countless groups.

It was discovered by WABetaInfo, who say this addition is “under development for standard WhatsApp accounts and it will be released in a future update”.

As ever with early beta tests, WhatsApp bosses could well decide not to go ahead with the change.

But seeing as it’s already been granted to business accounts, we think the chances of it being made available widely are pretty high.

However, there is one slight difference to the earlier version.

For standard WhatsApp accounts, it appears the filter button will be always visible, even when you are not searching for chats and messages.

So be on the look out for future updates, as it may well be included.

In the meantime, watch out for groups on WhatsApp, as they’ve just got a whole lot busier.
