On the other hand, the application is very easy to use and does not require any particular configuration. However, if you are here now and are reading this tutorial, it seems clear to me that, despite the extreme ease of use of the app, a doubt has arisen: it is possible forward WhatsApp messages so how do you do with normal SMS or emails? The answer is yes, and today I'll tell you how to make the most of this feature.



Is it difficult to use? To answer your question… I just tell you that reading the opening lines of this guide took you much more time than it will take to forward the messages! Forwarding WhatsApp messages is in fact a very simple operation to perform, regardless of whether you are more or less practical in terms of new technologies.

I am sure that in the end you will be able to tell yourself more than satisfied and that in case of need you will also be ready and happy to explain to all your friends eager to receive a similar tip how to forward WhatsApp messages. What do you say, we bet?

Before providing you with all the explanations of the case, however, it seems to me necessary to make some clarifications. First of all, you must know that you can forward items on Whatsapp both in case of received messages and sent messages. Furthermore, the procedure to be put into practice can be carried out both with messages containing only text and with those that also include multimedia elements.


In all cases, the steps to take may be slightly different depending on the type of device used: Android smartphone, iPhone or other mobile phone, client for computer and WhatsApp Web. Regardless of the device in use, it is essential that there is an active and working Internet connection, whether the connection is via Wi-Fi or via a data connection makes no difference. Furthermore, regardless of the real sender, all forwarded messages will appear to have been sent by you.


Forward WhatsApp messages from smartphones

Android

If you have an Android smartphone and want to forward WhatsApp messages, the first step you need to take is to access the screen of your device where all the apps are grouped and press the icon of the famous instant messaging application. At this point, tap on the tab Chat placed at the top, presses the title (it can be the name of the contact with whom you are having a conversation or the name of the group) of the conversation of your interest and tries to identify the message sent or received that you want to forward.

Once this is done, press and continue to hold down on the movie until it is highlighted and then tap on arrow appeared in the upper right part of the application diagram. Eventually, you can also select and forward multiple messages at a time by pressing on each element of your interest in the chat.

At this point, you will be shown a new application screen through which you can choose the contact or group to forward the message to. So select a contact or a group from those attached to the section containing recent chats, tap the button OK to confirm your willingness to proceed with forwarding the message and wait a few moments for everything to be sent. If the contact or group you want to forward WhatsApp messages to is not in the recent list, you can find it by typing the name in the search field at the top.


If, on the other hand, you want to forward WhatsApp messages using an application other than the famous instant messaging app (eg. Messenger Facebook or the app to send and receive emails available "as standard") you must select the message on which you intend to act, tap the button to sharing located in the upper right part of the screen and choose one of the apps or proposed options attached to the displayed menu.
