Everyone is excited about the new WhatsApp features including the one that will show the number of times a message is forwarded. Well, let’s not talk about the rumors and start exploring the facts that confirm the new WhatsApp features.
According to reports, WhatsApp is all set to introduce a set of new features anytime soon. These features will help over 1.5 billion WhatsApp users know the message forward frequencies and the information.
However, these features are not yet available. But, according to reports, the WhatsApp development team is working on these two new features in the beta mode for the Android platform.
What Are The Latest Features Expected?
There are two key features the WhatsApp users are waiting eagerly for, namely Forwarding info and Frequently Forwarded feature. Furthermore, the Forwarding info feature won’t do anything but will show more information about a message. It will also help users know the number of times a message has been forwarded.
However, the feature is limited to sent messages only and it will not track the received messages. Well, the feature seems really great to know the trending texts on WhatsApp groups. However, the time will tell how this feature will boost WhatsApp user experience and what actual benefits it will offer.
“Frequently Forwarded” is another feature WhatsApp is going to offer with its future update.
This feature won’t do anything other than tagging the text with “Frequently Forwarded” label. According to reports, the messages forwarded more than four times on WhatsApp will be eligible to get this tag and label.
So, the primary motive with this feature is to help WhatsApp users identify the frequently forwarded messages. Well, we can’t predict how this feature will actually work. But, after its release, spammers won’t be able to fool people on WhatsApp sending the same messages to multiple groups and peoples.
Please note that developers have not confirmed any of these features officially yet. All the info we are providing you is based on reports and research. Also, the chances are that these features may not work as we have described. However, the basic approach or idea of the features are supposed to be the same as mentioned above.
