Did you know that WhatsApp allows you to forward messages from one chat to another? You can also forward messages from a chat to your Status. Our guide will show you how this works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the WhatsApp application on iOS. Also note, this process is slightly different on iOS and Android.

Step 1: Tap and hold on the message you wish to forward.

Step 2: On iOS, tap “Forward.” On Android, tap the right arrow button at the top of the screen.

Step 3: On iOS, tap the right arrow in the bottom-left corner of the screen. On Android, this step isn’t necessary.

Step 4: Tap the contact you wish to forward the message to. If you’re using iOS and you want to search for a contact manually, tap the Search bar at the top of the screen. If you’re on Android, tap the magnifying glass in the top-right corner of the screen to search for a contact. Note: On both iOS and Android, you can also tap “My Status” near the top of the screen to share the message as a post on your Status.

Step 5: On iOS, tap “Forward” in the bottom-right corner of the screen. On Android, tap the arrow in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
