WhatsApp calls this new feature “Description for Forwarded Messages” and has started releasing it to some beta testers. Lots of users forward media files and documents on WhatsApp each day. However, things can get a bit confusing when you need to forward a lot of files. Trying to identify each file in the app becomes quite tedious.

WhatsApp has finally come up with a solution to make it very easy to identify forwarded media files. Per the details of the update, users will now be able to add their own custom description to forwarded images. Even if the image comes with its own description, you can be able to delete it and replace it with your own.
Not All Beta Testers Will Get the New WhatsApp Feature Immediately
This version will bring the app to version 126.96.36.199 and will be available for some beta testers. The website emphasized that not all beta accounts will get it immediately. This feature becomes handy in different ways. For example, if someone forwards an image with a wrong description, you can change it. Also, you can add your own description to images without one.
It will also be useful in explaining something about an image and why you forwarded it. Doing stuff like sharing your thoughts or opinions about a video or an image now becomes easier with this feature.
This new feature joins a queue of features currently under development. As usual, beta testers will first get it before it finally goes to all public users of WhatsApp.
