According to the details, WhatsApp has given its users a feature that makes it easy for users to verify whether the claims made in the messages received on the app are true or not.
It should be noted that this service run by Facebook has enabled it in Brazil, Italy, Ireland, Mexico, Spain, UK and USA. This feature provided by the WhatsApp company is called Web Search.
This obviously means that WhatsApp itself never sees the content of any message.
In this regard, the WhatsApp company says that this feature does not currently support viewing photos and videos. The messaging platform said that WhatsApp’s feature available on Android, iOS and web apps is in its infancy. However, WhatsApp plans to unveil the feature, which it began testing users around the world several months ago.
But regardless, this new feature comes at a time when WhatsApp and other messaging platforms are being used more than ever as people stay in touch with their friends, family and colleagues at the height of an epidemic. ۔
Keep in mind that WhatsApp has been working to combat the spread of misinformation on its platform in recent years.
Note that WhatsApp has introduced a number of features to better control the problems that arose in this regard last year.
WhatsApp, on the other hand, has imposed some restrictions since then. WhatsApp had in April imposed an additional restriction on how often a message could be shared on its platform.
WhatsApp said that any message forwarded five or more times will now face a new limit that will prevent the user from forwarding more than one chat (contact) at a time.
Since then, the volume of messages already forwarded globally has dropped by 70%.
