Search Feature in ChatGPT to Find Specific Words or Topics in Conversation History

I would like to propose the introduction of a search functionality within the ChatGPT interface. This feature would enable users to search for specific words or topics within their conversation history. As a frequent user of ChatGPT, I often find myself wanting to refer back to previous discussions or topics I have explored with the AI. Currently, this requires manually scrolling through the chat history, which can be time-consuming and inefficient, especially for long-term users with extensive chat histories.

The proposed search feature would allow users to quickly and easily locate specific parts of their conversations without having to manually sift through their entire chat history. This would not only enhance user experience but also make the platform more accessible and user-friendly, especially for educational, research, or professional purposes where specific information might need to be revisited. I believe this feature would significantly improve the usability of ChatGPT for all users. :four_leaf_clover:


This is my biggest feature request too. I find it so frustrating not being able to search for previous chats so that I can then continue a conversation with the same context and any personality additions that I made. I find scrolling through the chat painful, and most times I just have to give up and start a new chat.

The proposed feature would definitely be a life saver for me.

Yes please 100%
After using this amazing tool since it launched my list of chats has become so long. I am finding more and more that I want to continue a conversation and it takes a lot of effort, manually looking through everything.

Please consider adding this feature! It would really help.

It’s available in the iOS app already.
