Instagram allows users to search for specific messages in conversations, rather than requiring them to scroll through their message history to find something that was previously said.
Our guide will show you how to search for messages in chats in the Instagram mobile application.
Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram app on iOS.
Step 1: Open the conversation containing the message(s) you want to find and tap the conversation name at the top of the screen.
Step 2: Under the “More actions” section, tap “Search in conversation.”
Step 3: Type your search query in the search bar that appears on the screen.
