In an example, WhatsApp also showed a link someone had been sent; that claimed that drinking boiled garlic water would cure COVID-19.

The recipient, however, can now press the magnifying glass button to search for information about the link. In the example, the user is also shown web results from fact-checking websites that prove the claim is false.
