WhatsApp adds search feature to tackle misinformation

WhatsApp is piloting a search on the web feature to help users verify forwarded messages with additional information from the internet.

When a user forwards a message, WhatsApp labels it with a single arrow icon, and allows the user to share the message with five chats at one time. A message forwarded many times gets a double-tick to let users know it was shared several times.

“Providing a simple way to search messages that have been forwarded many times may help people find news results or other sources of information about content they have received,” WhatsApp said
