In an attempt to curb the spreading of inaccurate and sometimes downright wrong information, WhatsApp announced that it is rolling out a feature that indicates which message has been "forwarded".

This is a great move to ensure that the receivers know whether a message was indeed written by the sender or was just forwarded from another chat thread.
