In its effort to reduce the issue of spreading fake news through broadcast and forward messages, Whatsapp has restricted the forwarding of messages to just 20 Users with its new update.
Because of the frequent reports of fake broadcast messages leading to killings in some parts of India, Whatsapp has been adding different features to help curb the unfortunate occurrence, they previously added the “Suspicious Link Detection“ feature which helps users to detect sent and received links that are suspicious in WhatsApp.

Some might still think the maximum 20 people is a huge number considering the many messages been received in recent times. Whatsapp might include more adjustments in future updates.
Other Social Media platforms might soon take advantage of this feature to help add a little bit of security also so as to reduce the spread of news.
