WhatsApp is working on two new features to bring more transparency for forwarded messages.
1. Forwarding Info
This feature will tell you how many times your message has been forwarded. This is shown in the Message info section which can be seen by long pressing the sent message and tapping info icon on top.
WABetaInfo reports that this feature only works with the message you have sent to others, and, if you want to find out the forwarded count for the message you have received, you will have to send it to someone else (or yourself) and then check the count in the Message Info section.
2. Frequently Forwarded
The other feature called Frequently Forwarded adds a “Frequently forwarded” label above a sent message when it has been forwarded more than four times.
The report says you won’t see a forward count for a message if it has been forwarded five or more times.
