Upcoming WhatsApp Update for Android Includes Dark Mode, Brings Forwarding Information
WhatsApp was recently testing a new Forwarding Info feature that will tell users the number of times a message was forwarded, and also showed a frequently forwarded label when a message has been forwarded more than four times.
It appears that the latest beta build of WhatsApp for Android has introduced at least one of the features via the open beta channel for all testers. Following the WhatsApp beta update (version 2.19.87), we can now see the number of times a message has been forwarded.
Moreover, the update also brings more traces of the long-awaited dark mode for WhatsApp, but there is no word when that will arrive with a beta or stable build. Read on for more details about the latest WhatsApp update for the beta Android app.
The WhatsApp beta 2.19.87 update has finally enabled the message forward info feature. All users who received the beta update can now see the number of times a message has been forwarded.
If you have received a forwarded message that has been sent to multiple users, you cannot check the number of times it has been forwarded.

It is worth mentioning here that these are just traces spotted in the code and the dark mode feature has officially not been rolled out for beta testers. At the moment, there is no word as to when the dark mode will arrive on WhatsApp for Android via a stable or beta update.
