WhatsApp Launches ‘Search the Web’ Option to Cross-Check Forwarded Messages

WhatsApp has launched a new ‘Search the Web’ option that will enable users to check information shared to them via a forwarded message.

“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 the content they have received,” WhatsApp said in a blog post on Tuesday.

“This feature works by allowing users to upload the message via their browser without WhatsApp ever seeing the message itself”.

The company didn’t reveal when the feature would be available for users in India but one can expect the rollout to happen soon.

Now, any message that has been forwarded at least five times will feature a ‘magnifying glass’ icon at its side, which will allow the user to search the web for the data in the message.
