WhatsApp has started to label messages so that you know if they’ve been forwarded to you and not created from scratch.
As part of its effort to help users improve their safety on its platform, WhatsApp has started to label forwarded messages, providing extra context that makes group chats and one-on-one chats a lot easier to follow. The feature will also help users determine if their “friend or relative wrote the message they sent or if it originally came from someone else.”
The new forwarded label is only available to users who have the latest supported version of the WhatsApp app on their device.
WhatsApp recently introduced several new features for groups, including the ability for group admins to be the only members of a group chat to broadcast messages to the rest of the group. It also included group descriptions so that group admins can “set the purpose, guidelines, or topics” for a group, the ability for admins to remove admin permissions for group participants, a “group catch up” feature, and a new “participant search” feature.
