With up to 5 chats open at once, WhatsApp currently allows you to forward a message that has been designated as forwarded. To one chat at a time, you can forward messages with the Forwarded multiple times tag. WhatsApp is currently implementing new forwarding restrictions in an effort to lessen the amount of spam and false information that is spread on the site, as WABetaInfo, a tipster on WhatsApp, first noticed.
WhatsApp Message Forwarding Limits
Messages with the forwarded tag can only be forwarded to one group chat at a time as of the WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update, which began rolling out last month. You can exchange messages that have been forwarded several times with one chat or group chat at a time.
Here is what WhatsApp says in a support post regarding the rationale behind the additional restrictions.
To keep conversations on WhatsApp private and intimate, these messages can only be forwarded to one chat at a time. According to WhatsApp’s support page, this aids in reducing the spread of misinformation, viral messages, and false information.
Users will now encounter an error when attempting to forward a message to numerous group conversations. Forwarded messages can only be sent to one group chat at a time, according to the error message. You may view the pop-up notice below:
