WhatsApp has a ‘forward’ feature that allows you to forward messages from an individual or group chat to another individual or group chat. If you have forwarded messages, then you might have noticed a “Forwarded” label on the messages. This basically helps you know if your friend or family member wrote the message they sent or if the message originally came from someone else.
WhatsApp: 5 things you should know about ‘forward’ messages
#WhatsApp lets you forward a message with up to five chats at a time. So, you will have to do the same again and again if you want to forward a message to a lot of users.
#When a message is forwarded many times on WhatsApp, it can only be forwarded to one chat at a time. In simpler terms, when a message is forwarded through a chain of five or more chats, meaning it’s at least five forwards away from its original sender. So, WhatsApp displays a double arrow icon and the “Forwarded many times” label. These messages can only be forwarded to one chat at a time.
#The Facebook-owned company allowed you to also forward media, locations, or contacts, so you don’t have to re-upload them.
#Any messages you forward that aren’t your own outgoing messages will display the “Forwarded” label to you and any recipient receiving the message.
#If you want to send a message (that has a “forwarded many times” label) to more than five people, then you can do that by just copy-pasting it to one chat. After that, you can forward it to up to five users in one go.
