WhatsApp is Testing Two New Features for Stopping Fake News

WhatsApp is testing two new features in order to stop the spread of false information - a new browser and a reverse image search. The two new features are said to be currently in beta testing mode.

The reverse image search tool will pop up in chat and allow people to search to see where an image came from before they consider sharing it. It was in the last month, that WhatsApp had banned around two million fake or abusive accounts.
