WhatsApp brings to iOS the limitation of message forwarding to a group chat only once

WhatsApp is beginning to implement on iOS devices the option that prevents users from forwarding the same message to several chat groups within the application simultaneously, so that it can only be shared in a single chat with these characteristics at a time.

It was at the beginning of March when WABetaInfo warned that the app had introduced this feature in beta for Android update 2.22.7.2 and now it has been verified in beta version 22.7.0.76 for iOS.

Now, WABetaInfo has shared a screenshot showing a notification warning users that it is not possible to forward messages sent to more than one group chat at a time .

This new functionality limits the forwarding of messages to one, so that when a message appears as forwarded, it is no longer possible to send it to other WhatsApp groups.

Those who try to do so will see a notification on their screens detailing that “ Forwarded messages can only be sent to a single group chat ”.

In this way, users who intend to send a certain message to more than one group chat must return to it, select it and send it individually to another conversation with several participants.

It should be remembered that this restriction modified the measure put in place by the company in 2020 when a limit was introduced for messages forwarded to groups in order to stop the spread of ‘ fake news ‘ or false news.

At the moment this option is only available for either WhatsApp for Android 2.22.8.11 beta testers or WhatsApp for iOS 22.7.0.76 beta. (I)
