Reported by Gadgets360, this feature was spotted on the Android beta version (2.18.179) of the app. This means, when you forward someone’s message, those will now be specifically labeled as ‘Forwarded’ messages. This label will show up on both the sender’s and recipient’s end.
If you want to get early access to the feature you can download the WhatsApp beta version on your Android device. It is available through the Google Play beta program or in an APK file form via APK Mirror.
