WhatsApp is developing a feature that allows users to Google an image, from within the chat app, to help verify if the image is true or fake news.

WhatsApp BetaInfo says with the new feature, users can click on an image in their chats and get a new option, Search Image, in addition to the usual forward image or reply message options.
