New WhatsApp feature tells you when message is read
ANI November 7, 2014
Mobile messaging service WhatsApp has rolled out an update that allows users to know if their texts have been read by the receiver.
Earlier, users were only notified of messages being sent and delivered. While one grey tick meant a message has been successfully sent, two grey ticks showed it has been delivered. The latest update by WhatsApp notifies users with two blue ticks if their message has been read.
The app now also shows the exact time a text was sent. Users need to press and hold down on a particular post to know the accurate time the message was sent to them.
The updates are being rolled out for users across platforms.
