TECH BREAK: Can't tell if a message is forwarded? WhatsApp has the solution

1 weeks ago, 07:39

By: Augustine Sang

Mobile messaging service WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that automatically labels forwarded messages for context.
The extra feature is characterised by the word 'forwarded' on top of any message that users share from within WhatsApp.
According to WhatsApp, this extra feature helps users determine if their friend wrote the message or if it originally came from someone else.
This, however, doesn’t mean that messages without the ‘forwarded’ label are originally authored by the sender. When a message is copy-pasted, it will not have the ‘forwarded’ label.
The extra feature is available on the latest versions of WhatsApp.
