how to forward a message in Messenger

Hi all!
How do you forward a message to someone en the Messenger app? Is there an accessible way to do this?
Thanks in advance!


Just double tap and hold

Hi Dawn,
In order to forward or copy a message in messenger, firstly, you drag your finger to navigate to that message. (navigating to that message by flicting one finger is not recommended in this case Since it failed to take a next step in my case.) Then double tap and hold for about 3 second to call a menu. then flict one finger right or left to navigate to forward button. It is possibly at bottom left as it is in my iPhone 6s with iOs 11.

thank you!

Thank you so much!
I was having a heck of a time, trying to figure it out, and finding out how to do it!

An Easier Way!

Hi, if you open the conversation and navigate to the part of the message you would like to forward/copy, ensuring that you are on the Actions rotor item, swipe up or down with one finger until you hear "Copy" and double tap. To Forward, select the "More" item and double tap. This will give you more options, including the one to forward. HTH!

RE: #Just double tap and hold # an easier way

Hello Chris. I believe the previous poster was referring to the actions option found on the rodor. Just place two fingers on the face of the screen, slightly apart, and twist them as if you are winding something. this will spin the rodor and you will hear a sound each time you spin it. Note: If you don't hear the sound try placing two fingers on the screen and then push your phone holding hand one way and your fingers on the screen holding hand the other way, as if you are twisting two things in opposite directions. I find this is fast and effective.

Once you find the actions option then flick up or down to see what actions are available. When you find the one you want then do a one finger double tap to activate the action.


Double click and holding does not work

Hi all. I tried using double click and hold and then swiping left to go to forward but could not make it work. On the other hand on some videos as discussed above flicking up and down on the video provides the forward button. For the people who do get the double tap and hold gesture working, does it work in all videos?? Can you record a video to show how this is done? For me only the videos that open in a new window give me the option to forward by flicking up down.
