As a precautionary measure, WhatsApp is developing a mechanism that prevents users from forwarding a “forwarded” message to multiple groups. Those who attempt to forward a text that has already been forwarded will get the notice “forwarded messages may only be delivered to one group chat” when the functionality is released.
Several WhatsApp beta testers have already received the individual group forward functionality. WhatsApp beta on Android v126.96.36.199 & WhatsApp beta on iOS v188.8.131.52 are both equipped with the capability. Individuals will no longer be able to send a message to many groups at once, preventing the spread of disinformation and false news on the site, as has previously stated.
Messages may only be forwarded to a maximum of five other WhatsApp conversations at a time. While this function was initially introduced in India, it is now available to everyone. In order to circumvent the spread of spam and other bogus news on WhatsApp, WhatsApp has imposed a restriction on the number of times a user may forward a message.
WhatsApp is working on allowing the sharing of files of up to 2 GB in size.
In other developments, as you may have heard, Whatsapp may be developing a solution to the issue of transferring huge files over its chat network. It’s possible that WhatsApp is working on allowing its users to share files that are close to 2GB in size, as per WABetaInfo, an updates monitor for the chat service. There has been a longstanding functionality on Telegram that allows users to send numerous files at once or a single huge file.
In Argentina, iPhone users are participating in a test of WhatsApp’s ability to exchange huge files. WhatsApp v184.108.40.206 for iOS offers a new feature that allows users to share their location with other users. Sending files less than 100MB is now possible across both Android & iOS devices. Adding the ability to share bigger files through the Meta-owned messaging platform will be very beneficial for its users in the future.
