Key Specifications

  • WhatsApp is bringing the ability to Forward Media with Captions
  • The feature is currently under beta testing
  • The feature will be going to roll out for Android users only

Instant Messaging Platform- WhatsApp keeps on adding new features for better user experience. Earlier, it was impossible to forward images with captions on WhatsApp; users had to use the Share button to send messages to other users. WABetaInfo confirmed that beta tests are in the pipeline to test the feature of forwarding images, documents, GIFs, and videos, along with the caption.

WhatsApp Forward Media files features lets you quickly forward any pictures, videos and GIFs that you receive from one account to another. However, these forwarded messages could never include any original text caption. That could change with a future WhatsApp update.

WhatsApp will soon bringing the ability to Forward Media with Caption

The handy addition will make sharing images, videos and GIFs along with some context easier, as users will be able to forward both received messages and ones they have sent previously, to other users without needing to retype the caption.

After all, having a contextualised caption when you forward a video or an image can help people with a better understanding of the action, and they will know why you have shared this media content with them. It will be interesting to see if WhatsApp makes any wholesale changes to this feature before its official release, which should happen soon.

WhatsApp limits the number of forwards a person can make, and gives the Whatsapp Group admin the control to decide which content is suitable for their group. Apart from this, WhatsApp is also testing other features, and has added new tools for users in the past few months.

This feature is under testing and was reportedly only made available to a select number of beta testers. Currently only available for select beta testers on Android, the feature could eventually make it to beta users on iOS as well
