WhatsApp Launches Search The Web Feature To Curb The Spread Of Fake News

We all know WhatsApp has been condemned and criticized several times in many countries for allowing fake news to be circulated on its platform. In other to fight against this, WhatsApp has now introduced a Search the Web feature which will let users check the authenticity of a forwarded message to avoid being mis-informed.

WhatsApp provides a special forwarded label to messages shared in chats that have been forwarded multiple times. These two arrows  help people know when they've received a message that was not written by a close contact.

This feature works by allowing users to upload the message via their browser without WhatsApp ever seeing the message itself. Search the Web is being rolled out in Brazil, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Mexico, UK and US for those on the latest versions of WhatsApp for Android, iOS and WhatsApp Web.
