WhatsApp To Restrict Message Forwarding to One Contact at a Time.

As fake news are the biggest threat at this time of pandemic popular messaging app ‘WhatsApp‘ has made a big move. To curb misinformation and misleading content WhatsApp has now decided to further scale down limit of it’s forwards.

 

From now a user can send a frequently forwarded message to ‘one chat’ at a time. Earlier this number was ‘5‘. However, this limit is for frequently forwarded messages and content and not for all. The limit applies to frequently forwarded messages that have been previously forwarded five times or more. This feature would come with the latest update.
