Whatsapp Introduces Frequently Forwarded Message Tag
Another such rumor has been finally proved to not be a rumor which is the frequently forwarded tag on messages. Ironically, WhatsApp has introduced this update for the sake of putting an end to the rumors making rounds of the internet and spreading misinformation.
Spreading rumors and fake news has led to a series of lynchings in the country and is a serious issue. The Government of India has also had some difficulties with the app when they directed the app to trace every message with a digital footprint. To which, WhatsApp responded by saying that they will quit the nation if the Government imposed rules on them.
But WhatsApp has been working on ways to help curb the spreading rumors, which is why this feature.
Whatsapp is in the process of providing this feature to its iOS and Android users. The app will show you a notification with a double arrow in grey color each time you try forwarding a message that has been forwarded multiple times before. The app will show a message each time you forward such a message. This message will be, “This message will be marked as forwarded many times.”
Whatsapp Can Be Opened On Multiple Devices
As per a tweet by the popular account WABetaInfo, which informs us about the upcoming updates of Whatsapp, has confirmed that Whatsapp can now also be operated on multiple devices.
WABetaInfo has tweeted, “It includes WhatsApp for Windows (UWP, when available), so you can use WhatsApp on your PC if your phone has no connection. iPhone/Android and iPadOS included.”
