The screenshots by WABetaInfo show that once a message has been marked as forwarded, it is no longer possible to deliver it to more than one group. If users attempt to do so, they are met with an on-screen message.

If users wish to forward such statements to more than one group, they must first select the message and then deliver it. In July 2018, the Facebook-owned messenger introduced a restriction in India that allowed users to forward a message to a maximum of five separate chats simultaneously. These restrictions were globally in January 2019.
