In a bid to curb the spread of misinformation, WhatsApp is rolling out a feature to check whether a text received on the messaging service is actually true or not. The capability, currently available in select regions, searches a forwarded message on the web, letting you see all the facts needed to determine the authenticity of the assertion made in the text. WhatsApp says it will not use this option to see the content of your texts.
