About Forwarded Messages feature

Without any doubt you should have latest version of WhatsApp to get this feature on your one-on-one chat. This feature was previously a part of the WhatsApp Beta for Android version 2.18.179, released last month. This new feature is rolling out now for both Android and iOS users and will be available globally in the next few days.

This label makes a room in top of forwarded message which is labeled as “Forwarded”. It will help you to decide that the message, you’ve received is forwarded by the person. The best part about this feature is nobody can disable this option. This means that users who forward the message isn’t able to remove “Forwarded” label from their message. While the feature is indeed help to cases where a message is being forward using WhatsApp’s native message forwarding functionality, it doesn’t restrict users from copying-pasting the text and forwarding it as a fresh message, ensuring no “Forwarded” label is visible in that case.
