How to forward messages

Use the forward feature to forward messages from an individual or group chat to another individual or group chat. Forwarded messages are indicated with a “Forwarded” label, which helps you know if your friend or family member wrote the message they sent or if the message originally came from someone else.
When you forward a message, you can share it with up to five chats at one time. If a message has already been forwarded, you can forward it to up to five chats, including a maximum of one group chat. When a message is forwarded many times, it can only be forwarded to one chat at a time.

Forward a message
  1. In an individual or group chat, tap and hold the message you want to forward, then tap Forward.
    • To forward multiple messages, you can select additional messages after you select the first message.
  2. Tap Forward
    .
  3. Search for or select the individual or group chats you want to forward the messages to.
  4. Tap Forward.
Note:
  • You can also forward media, locations, or contacts so you don't have to re-upload them.
  • Any messages you forward that aren't your own outgoing messages will display the label "Forwarded" to you and any recipient receiving the message.
