If someone sends you a funny video, a picture, a tweet, or an e-mail, you often have the first thing you want to share with someone else. Instead of copying the link and jumping to another chat, WhatsApp makes it easier to distribute content directly from the thread in which you received it via the forward function.
Now something you should know in advance: WhatsApp has recently introduced a new feature limitation that is limited to 5 contacts or groups at a time. This change occurred as part of the mass distribution of forged or misleading information. So do not think that you can spam your contacts all at once. Forwarding, however, is a convenient way to share messages with one to five people or groups.
: Forward attachments quickly
Forwarding text or attachments is remarkably easy, but attachments take the cake. Both on iOS and Android, an arrow appears next to photos and videos. However, only Android displays the arrow next to music files, documents, contacts, location, and other attachments. Tap this arrow and you will be taken to the page Forward . More information about this page can be found in a second.
You can also forward when you preview the media. For Android, you'll see an arrow at the top of the screen. Tap there to go to Forward . On iOS, you must use an additional tap. At the bottom left, select the "Share" button and then "Forward". So if you want to forward an attachment that is not an image or video file, this is the next best way to do it quickly on an iPhone.
The way you chose above, WhatsApp shows you a menu of contacts and groups to chat with Page Forward .
As mentioned earlier, you can choose up to five of them (if you want to share them all, you can always form a group with all your contacts), and you can also split the message to " My Status." Once you've selected your recipients, tap Next (iOS) or the forward arrow (Android) below.
When you forward the message to a person, WhatsApp leads you to this conversation. However, if you forward the message to more than one person, you will remain in the original chat.
Method 2: Forward text and attachments
While the first method applies only to attachments, the next method works equally with both attachments and text. To get started, long press on the message you want to forward. Under Android, pressing contents long automatically highlights.
On an iPhone, a menu appears below the message. Here you can tap "Forward" or simply move the option down and release. For attachments on iOS, you can also use 3D Touch on the iPhone to look at the content, then swipe up and tap Forward.
Tap any other messages you want to forward to select them. Then tap the forward arrow on the bottom left (iOS) or top right (Android). Alternatively, tap the Action button on iOS. Then, in the activity view, in the sharing extensions row, tap "Forward X-message (s) to WhatsApp." On page Forward you can forward your message to contacts in the same way as in Method 1.
When you forward the message to a person, WhatsApp leads you to this conversation. If you forward the message to more than one person, you will remain in the original chat.
Forwarding content to WhatsApp is undoubtedly a handy feature that's made more comfortable only by new features. The app will soon allow users to see the number of times a message has been redirected, as well as brand messages that have been routed five or more times with a "Frequently Forwarded" tag.
Forwarded tags are redirected Messages are always displayed with the tag " Forwarded " so that you and your contacts can keep track of what is original and shared. The only exception to this rule is when you forward your own message, or when your friend forwards your own message from another chat.
