Almost a yr in the past, WABetaInfo reported that WhatsApp shall be bringing a characteristic to go looking forwarded pictures straight from the app. However, that characteristic didn’t make its technique to the app. Now, the identical supply is reporting that WhatsApp has just lately submitted an replace through the Google Play Beta Program that shall be bringing an identical image-search characteristic, however for forwarded textual content messages. The app model shall be 2.20.94.
How Will It Work?
Now, the way in which it really works is absolutely easy. When a consumer will get a forwarded message, a small magnifier icon will seem beside the message. When the consumer faucets this icon, WhatsApp will ask for the consumer’s consent to add the message on Google to seek for it on the internet. The consumer can simply faucet the “Search Web” button on the fitting to straight Google the textual content content material.
In my opinion, this characteristic will show to be a extremely efficient instrument in combating misinformation and faux information. I additionally assume that WhatsApp ought to block the consumer from forwarding a message with out verifying it first. This characteristic ought to be specifically applied in India, the place folks mindlessly ahead something and every thing they obtain on the platform.
WABetaInfo reviews that the characteristic shall be first coming to the Android model of the app. For iOS customers, WhatsApp shall be rolling out the characteristic subsequently.
