Windows Phone 8.1 gets text message searching


Windows Phone 8.1 has many unsung user experience improvements, and it turns out one of those is the ability to search your text messages.

Discovered by a redditor using the new Windows Phone 8.1 emulator, the feature allows one to search through all your messages for a particular piece of text, but unfortunately does not allow one to search only one thread of messages.

Universal search is also said to be a part of Windows Phone 8.1 via Cortana, which will hopefully also support text messages.
