A few days ago on 10th July 2018 Whatsapp has introduced a new feature, Whatsapp Forwarded Label. The new “Forwarded” label will show that the message has been shared its the original forwarded message not written by the sender. The company wants to stop publishing fake news from users, that’s why this new feature Forwarded implemented.
WhatsApp always look about the safety of users. If the user reshared a message it will show a forwarded symbol on the top left corner. This feature prevents fake news publishing to others.
Whatsapp published this on the official blog:
Starting today, WhatsApp will indicate which messages you receive have been forwarded to you. This extra context will help make one-on-one and group chats easier to follow. It also helps you determine if your friend or relative wrote the message they sent or if it originally came from someone else. To see this new forwarded label, you need to have the latest supported version of WhatsApp on your phone.
