WhatsApp New Restrictions: Know More
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.

The new single group forward restriction was out to some Android beta testers according to WABetaInfo. Still, the company is now enabling the same limits to more users when installing the beta for Android 184.108.40.206.
This new restriction comes just days after announced the availability of new voice message features on various Android devices. Out of chat playback, the ability to pause and resume recording, draught preview, and fast playback were all new features in that update. Some of these features were already on iPhones and iPads.
Previously, WhatsApp had begun to roll out the multiple linked devices feature to more users, which was still in beta. Users can now access it on four different devices. Now without worrying about keeping their primary phone online all the time, as was the case with WhatsApp Web.
