WhatsApp now labels the forwarded messages you receive

A new feature on WhatsApp will now indicateĀ if a message you receive has been forwarded from another conversation.

This means that you will be able to see if you are the original receiver of a message or not.

Forwarding messages is a simple affair: hold said message until WhatsApp’s top command bar is visible, then hit the right-facing arrow icon at the right hand side of the bar. A list of contacts will then appear.

Additionally, if you receive a forwarded message, you will be notified by a small label above said message.

“This extra context will help make one-on-one and group chats easier to follow,” WhatsAppĀ wrote in a blog post.

They also warn that users should be careful about what they share over the messenger platform.
