WhatsApp forwarded messages has been the sole source for many many rumors and what not. So WhatsApp has taken it a step further and will start to label the forwarded message as forwarded in a motive that people just don’t believe it’s true and it’s just a forwarded message.
In a blog posted on WhatsApp Blog, they have mentioned that WhatsApp will indicate the message on the basis whether it is forwarded or not. This will make chats easier to follow and help you determine the message sent by your friend or relative is forwarded or not. This will apply to text, image, video and audio messages.
This will definitely alert about the message you receive and will also help you follow groups much better now by avoiding those forwarded messages.
