WhatsApp seems to have added a search icon next to Forwarded messages to directly search with the content of the forward on Google - fake messages that have been called out, usually show up on top. "This will upload the message to Google". The helpline, which can be accessed by sending a text to +41-79-893-1892, is an automated chatbot-based service that is being launched with the primary intention of helping people find an authentic, official helpline for coronavirus-related information on what is the world's most used communications platform. This tool will allow users to run a web scan on a forwarded message from within the chat window. The entire message will be pasted in the Google Search bar, and relevant results can then be used to ascertain whether the message is fake or not. WhatsApp just launched a coronavirus data hub, and it is now testing a new search option.
In the days of the pandemic coronavirus, WhatsApp is testing a feature that would provide ground to their 2 billion users to verify the information they received. As mentioned, this feature is not enabled in beta yet, and is still under development. "This feature is now in testing, and we look forward to rolling it out in the near future", according to a TechCrunch report.
Using WhatsApp's new search feature is simple, all you need to do is open the app and swipe down at the chat screen to reveal the new search bar.
