  • WhatsApp could be testing a new forward preview feature
  • The feature is soon expected to release for Android users

How often do you look back at a message that you just sent and cringe? If your answer is way to often then this feature that India's most popular messaging app WhatsApp is working on could really come in handy for you. Facebook-owned instant messaging app WhatsApp could be testing a new feature called 'Forward Preview' to let Android users preview messages (text, image, GIFs, video and more) before sending them to multiple users. Spotted by WAbetainfo in WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.18.325, WhatsApp might soon roll out this feature to more users before making it widely accessible to the masses.

As the name suggests, this feature will give users a chance to take a final look at the message and recipients before sending it out so that they can rethink their decision to forward the message and add/remove people from the list of recipients. The report denotes that this feature activates only when the message is being forward to two or more users at the same time.

By default, Android users get 12 stickers, in addition to an option to download more, third-party stickers if they want. Once WhatsApp stickers feature rolls out to iOS users, they should be able to download third-party stickers as well, similar to Android users.
