In what seems to be a move to discourage the spreading of misinformation, Facebook is currently working on a new feature for its Messenger app. The new feature will limit users’ ability to forward a message to five people.
That said, we don’t know whether we’ll get a similar forwarded label in Facebook Messenger. Nevertheless, the message forwarding limitation is a much-needed feature.
According to reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong, the feature is currently in the developmental phase, which means that it may take a while to make the message forwarding feature become available for the public.
