We all know that WhatsApp, the most used messaging app throughout the globe, gives a lot of new and useful features to their users. Recently they released a bunch of new features in their Beta version. Now today they released another feature that’s related to all the forwarded stuff.
Millions of messages, photos, videos, etc. are being forwarded on WhatsApp everyday. There are a lot of content, which we don’t know whether they are forwarded, or not. Now WhatsApp is testing a new feature that shows the number of forwards your message is going through. Lets suppose if you send any photo to someone and he/she will forward it to 15 people and they will also forward it further, you can know that your message is being forwarded 15 times or even more. If you want to know the forward status of a message received to you, you need to forward it to someone else to checkout the numbers.
The source says that you won’t be able to see more than 5 forward counts as of now. Also, this feature is spotted only on Android, no information about other platforms right now. Few Beta users on version 2.19.80 have seen this feature, which is the latest Beta version out there. You may or may not see this feature on your phone. There are chances that it will be available to more users with the next Beta update. But do note that WhatsApp may not release this feature into the future stable version, or even pull it back from Beta as well.
So that’s all the information we have as of now. What are your thoughts on this new feature? Let us know in the comment section below. Also, stay tuned with us for more information.
