The second one warns of when a message has been forwarded, and is already active in the beta of the Android app .

The new update of the WhatsApp beta lets you know if someone has forwarded a message from you for a group or individual chat. It is something similar to what we had seen in other applications owned by the social network, such as Instagram notices when someone takes a screenshot within Instagram Stories. In this case, every time you receive a message that has been forwarded from another chat, you will be alerted about it.
