In recent months, WhatsApp has released a lot of updates, each of which was intended to make the popular instant messenger even safer than it was before. Most of the security updates were aimed at combating false news and sappers in chat rooms, but the new feature in the latest update, which we will talk about today, can be one of the most important for many WhatsApp users.
According to an insider from WABetaInfo, the popular instant messenger will soon allow users to block frequently forwarded messages in a group chat. This feature is reported to be available only to administrators and is available through group settings.
In other words, this will serve as a filter for spam detection. Nothing prevents users from copying frequently forwarded messages and sending them in the form of new ones, but this will definitely make them more difficult to spread. Although this function does not work yet, it is definitely determined that it will appear soon.
