A few weeks agowhat Whatsapp I was about to release a feature , through which users would be notified each time another member of the messaging platform forwarded one of their messages. Now, this function is already available.
This has been confirmed from WABetaInfo , and it seems that the latest beta version of the application has finally enabled this function, which was discovered in the WhatsApp code several months ago. While at the time we reviewed the operation, it is worth going back to take a look and so know when they have resent one of our WhatsApp messages.
The version of the application that enables this feature corresponds to the 2.18.179 Beta numbering, released yesterday through Google Play for all Android users attached to the beta channel. Beyond this novelty, the only relevant change that comes with the new version is the new default voice recorder, which replaces the classic one.
WhatsApp beta for android 2.18.179: The forward message feature is now available!
Let me know 😀

But focusing on the feature of message forwarding, as we could see at the time, this option appears in the form of a notice that is displayed on the message that has been forwarded by another member of the conversation, either in a group or a private chat. Upon seeing this notice, we will know that The message has been shared with a third party.
The user sending the original message will not know who has forwarded it , nor the receiver of the forwarded message will know who is the creator of the original message – unless the intermediate user tells him, of course -. On the other hand, it is worth mentioning that the option is available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
