WhatsApp launches test to limit forwarding private messages

Friday 20 July 2018 | 11:08 CET | News
WhatsApp has introduced a test to limit forwarding private messages for its private messaging app users. A few years back, WhatsApp added a feature that enables users to forward a message to multiple chats at once. WhatsApp has now announced it is launching a test to limit forwarding that will apply to everyone using WhatsApp. According to the company, in India, "where people forward more messages, photos, and videos than any other country in the world", WhatsApp will also test a lower limit of 5 chats at once and it will remove the quick forward button next to media messages.
