WhatsApp keeps on launching new features to make the app better for users. All the features are somehow addressing privacy concerns. From last some months WhatsApp is working on dark mode, picture-in-picture (PIP) mode 2.0, in-app browser. All these features are expected to be available in the app in the future. A few months back WhatsApp had announced frequently forwarded messages feature in an effort to curb fake news. This feature is not made available to both Android and iOS and launching globally in chunks. Previously, not everyone had received this feature.
WhatsApp Frequently Forward Feature will curb Fake News
The basic purpose behind this feature is to help WhatsApp users make the best decision while forwarding messages to friends or groups. In this way, the spread of fake news will be stopped or reduced. Though we have done an extensive blog on this feature, however, if some of our readers have missed it, this is how the feature works:
Every time when someone is about to forward a message, the app will show you a notification with a double arrow in grey colour when you are forwarding a message that has been forwarded multiple times before.
Furthermore, WhatsApp will also show notification: “This message will be marked as forwarded many times.” WhatsApp will not reveal how many times the message has been forwarded. Many users have received this feature, if you are not one of them, don’t worry, you will get it soon.
Moreover, parallel WhatsApp is also on its way to add multi-platform to its platform. This feature will allow users to use same WhatsApp on different devices. Let’s see when WhatsApp will launch this feature.
