As surreptitious as it might seem to some, Whatsapps instant messaging app all the same had a stealthy update rolled out for the IM. This time, the update lets you know when your message has been read by your recipient.
Here is how it all works and here’s an official quote from the Whatsapp’s FAQ repository.
If you see two blue check marks next to your sent message then the recipient has read your message. In a group chat or broadcast message, the check marks will turn blue when every participant has read your message.
You do not necessarily need to update your app from the App or Play Store to get this update if you are using the latest version of Whatsapp. What do you think about this feature? Has your app been updated with this feature? Please do let me know.
