WHATSAPP NOW TELLS YOU IF A MESSAGE YOU’VE RECEIVED IS FORWARDED





Social media app WhatsApp has decided to come out with a new feature particularly helpful in classifying whether the message sent to you is forwarded or not. This is done to take on the problems such as Fake news and Information dissemination problem that plagues the platform. Now, the messages which have been forwarded to you will carry out a tag “Forwarded” on it. It will help the user and inform him that the message sent to him has been forwarded. This will help him to differentiate between messages actually typed out and forwarded as received.



However, we rolled out some tests of this feature on WhatsApp  beta on Android smartphone , and it does indeed work . Now the point here is that this feature will only work if the sender will forward it using the forward button. This function will not work if the user will copy and paste the message into another chat and so it will not show the “forwarded” tag. But the thing is that forwards can be sent to multiple persons at a time while copying and pasting will definitely take some time. So, it will help us to know when the message is mass forwarded.



For the time being, the feature is only available on the beta version of WhatsApp for android( version 2.18.179) but is expected to make its way to more stable versions of other platforms as well . If you receive a lot of forwards you sure will be happy with this new upgrade since it helps you to distinguish fake news.
WhatsApp recently came out with another feature which helps us to speed up the process of sending media files to your contacts . This feature is known as predicted upload feature and is available for iOS and Androids.
