California: WhatsApp is a hub for all things users mention to be 'Forwarded as received'. Well, no more.

WhatsApp has added a new feature to its platform which will make it easier for users to identify messages or content which is being circulated across groups and individual chats by labeling them 'Forwarded', Mashable reported.

The idea behind the new feature is to help people identify and distinguish between rumors, fake news, and other misinformation spreading through WhatsApp.
