With over 1.5 billion active users each month, WhatsApp reigns supreme as the most popular messaging app in the world.
WhatsApp has evolved a lot in recent years as a constant stream of updates brought new features and made the app even better. In 2014 the developer behind the app was acquired by Facebook, but the popular service has remained untouched for now while its parent company has faced a lot of controversies.
WhatsApp Is The Most Popular Instant Messaging App
The success of the app was cemented by the dedication of the developers, and the latest update will make a lot of users happy. A few months ago WhatsApp announced a new feature which will inform users if any of their messages were forwarded. The announcement was met with acclaim as users enjoyed the fact that they will know if any of their messages were sent.
Another advantage came from the fact that the feature prevented the distribution of fake messages to a large number of users since they will know if others received the same message, a move which came as a great blow for malicious third-party entities who are responsible for scams and fraud schemes.
The anticipated feature is now available if you have access to the latest beta version of the app. You can gain access to this version by joining the beta program of the app, which is available on the Google Play Store.
WhatsApp Update Shows How Many Times Your Message Has Been Forwarded
Open the beta version of the app and scan the conversations for any messages which appear to be strange or unusual. In most cases, you can find some in group chats. To verify if the message was forwarded, tap on it, and hold your finger.
A small menu will appear in WhatsApp, and you will have to tap on the three-dot icon. Tap on the info option and a small window will show you everything you may want to know about the message, including the number of forwards.
