Better late than never!
Finally Whatspp has launched forward message labeling to tackle fake news and information to be spread.
In a blog post published yesterday, WhatsApp announced the new label, which will indicate when a message has been forwarded to someone from another user. The label will apply to text, image, video and audio messages too.
WhatsApp has beta tested these forwarded labels in India, the largest market and Brazil.
“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,” also they added.
Whatsapp Beta users can see this labeling from today.
