Since 2018 WhatsApp It notifies us when a message has been forwarded in a futile attempt to combat SPAM and ‘fake news’, a feature that was improved in 2019 by reporting if a message had been forwarded multiple times to prevent fake viralization. messages.
Any messages that we forward to our contacts will appear marked as “Forwarded” or “Forwarded multiple times”, letting our contacts know that someone has already sent us this message, photo, video or audio. Luckily there is another alternative method to forward message on WhatsApp which ignore this trick
Transfer pictures, videos, audios and files without the “Transferred” tip
If we receive a message with an image, video, audio file, or file and want to share it with our contacts and don’t want the tip of “Forwarded” to skip we don’t need to use the ‘Resend’ action but the option ‘To share’ and choose WhatsApp and contacts or contacts to send this message. The sharing option escapes the tip of WhatsApp.
Another advantage of the ‘Share’ option is that you can edit before sending the image or video, in addition to adding a comment in the same message, which is not the case with the option ‘Forward’ which transmits the original message as is.
In messages forwarded multiple times, the share option disappears, so we already have to open this image or video from our mobile’s gallery to be able to share it from there to avoid it being tagged as “Transferred”.
Forward SMS and links
For text messages and with links to websites, the “Share” option does not appear. Only the “Forward” and “Copy” options seem to share this message. To avoid the “Forwarded” tip, we must use the ‘Copy’ option. Once the SMS has been copied, just go into the conversation and paste the text to share this message with our contact.
