WhatsApp is experimenting with a feature that would limit how many times messages could be forwarded to group chats.
Social media companies are continuing to grapple with the spread of misinformation. WhatsApp’s latest feature is aimed at slowing the spread by limiting forwards across multiple group chats, according to AppleInsider.
