For some time, WhatsApp has been working on a tool to verify forwarded messages. According to the report, this feature is being given in WhatsApp Web. Apart from this, this feature has also been given for iOS and Android smartphones for some user groups.
According to a report by WhatsApp’s news-keeping website WABetainfo, the company has released the feature of search messages. It can be used in the new version of WhatsApp Web.
WABetainfo has also released a screenshot of this feature. In the chat, a search icon can be seen next to the message. This search icon will appear next to the messages that have been forwarded.
New feature in WhatsApp, search option will now be seen near messages,
these screenshots have been shared on Twitter where people are getting mixed replies. Some people say that they can see the search icon in front of the message, while some say that they have not yet received this feature.
How This Feature Works
Search option will now be seen near messages. On clicking the search bar, you will be asked whether you want to search this message on Google or not. If you tap Yes, you will be taken directly to the search engine page and from here you can guess whether this forward message is true or false.
Once this feature is fully released, fake WhatsApp messages or fake news can be verified. WhatsApp has not currently given official information about this feature.
