WhatsApp has been trying to combat fake news by restricting forwarded messages, as well as released commercials to educate the masses about the news that is shared on the platform. There is another feature that could help them tackle fake news. WhatsApp is about to integrate a reverse image search system via Google Images, to verify the authenticity of the image that you may have received in a message, for instance.
Reverse image search
According to a report by a WABetainfo, WhatsApp beta 2.19.73 update for Android has been spotted with a 'Search image' feature which will take a user to Google in order to search for similar images as the one which a user may have received in a WhatsApp chat.
3D Touch Action
The feature is said to be already available to WhatsApp beta users and should be rolled out end users soon enough.
A long-awaited feature, private replies was recently introduced for Android users. This feature is expected to finally reach iOS devices. With this feature, users can privately reply to a person in a group chat.
