WhatsApp for Android and iPhone (iOS) will indicate, this Tuesday afternoon (10), which messages were forwarded. The novelty is the update of the messenger after entering the experimental phase in the beta program. Users must download the new version to access the feature, which is enabled by default.
The Forwarding label is displayed at the beginning of the dialogue balloon, along with an arrow. This way, the recipient of the message knows that the person he is talking to did not originally write the material.

WhatsApp engineers in California also work on a tool that warns users about malicious links. The feature will prevent messenger supporters from opening scam pages by mistake. However, the company has not officially commented on the topic.
