Update: ITHome, the news source, updated its original report a day after the publication and said the reported WeChat feature wasn’t new, and the reshare function doesn’t show the original link source.
WeChat rolled out a new test version on Saturday, testing a new feature for Moments, a social sharing channel within WeChat, ITHome reported on Saturday. The feature allows users to reshare content posted by others. Users can press and hold any post on Moments to activate the reshare function. The feature will make it easier for WeChat to track the source of popular posts. In the new version, WeChat also added more support for embedding images and files in group announcements.
