Latest WhatsApp Updates
In an attempt to manage the spread of fake news and rumors that are alleged to have triggered a series of horrific lynching incidents, Whatsapp recently announced some new features in the app. These include:Latest WhatsApp Update

The number of people whom you can forward a message has been limited to 20. This means that from a single account a message can be forwarded only 20 times. Post that forwarding option will be disabled for that message. In India, where people forward more videos, messages and photos as compared to other countries this restriction has been set a lower limit of 5 forwards.
In addition the Tech Giant also alleged to remove the quick forward button next to media messages.
Whatsapp has added a feature that enabled users to forward multiple chats at once, a few years ago. Earlier in the month of July this year, Whatsapp launched a ‘forward label’ to identify if the message is original or has been forwarded.Latest WhatsApp Update
These latest WhatsApp Updates came as part of Whatsapp’s motive to maintain the image of a ‘private messaging app’ – A simple, secure and reliable platform enabling communication with friends and family.

These new features are available on the latest supported version of Whatsapp on Android and IPhone devices.

Another Update launched by WhatsApp to stop the spread of fake news and rumors is:

Suspicious Link Indicator: Earlier in the month of July Whatsapp had rolled out ‘Suspicious Link Indicator’ feature on Android Beta Version 2.18.221 to locally detect suspicious link and warn the recipients before they are opened. If the user still tries to open the link WhatsApp prompts them with another disclaimer pop up to alert the user. Two options, Open Link and Go Back will be provided in the dialog box with the suspicious character in the link highlighted.Latest WhatsApp Update
The indicator feature inspects the link of the attachment and if it is found to contain suspicious characters that are considered unusual, it treats them as spam and notifies the user.

This feature is not currently available on iOS and Windows phone but is known to be rolled out in the future.
