At present, users can simply forward a text to a contact or a group, by just selecting a content.
With the new feature, now users will have enough time to examine their text and decide whether they would like to change something in its before sending to anyone.
WhatsApp has been enhancing a way of messaging to an individual or a group in past few month.
Earlier, the app limited the use of forwarded messages and removed the quick forward button. With this, now a user can only forward a message to five contacts in its list.
Apart from this, the labelling forward option, allows a individual to know whether the message they have received is either written or taken from someone and forwarded.
WhatsApp's latest version is available Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family.
Recently, WhatsApp introduced third-party sticker packs to allow designers and developers around the world to create stickers for WhatsApp.
To do so, WhatsApp has included a set of APIs and interfaces that allow you to build sticker apps that add stickers to WhatsApp on Android or iOS.
You can publish your sticker app like any other app to the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, and users who download and install your app will be able to start sending those stickers right from within WhatsApp.
To use stickers in a chat, simply tap the new sticker button and select the sticker you want to share. You can add new sticker packs by tapping the plus icon. Stickers will be available for Android and iPhone.
