Whatsapp shows you when messages have been sent by showing a single grey tick, and when messages have been delivered by showing two grey ticks. New whatsapp update now shows when messages have been read by the recipient by making the two grey ticks to turn blue. Pressing and holding an individual message will show further details on when exactly the message was read.
More information about the features can be found on WhatsApp’s FAQ page.
In a group chat, the second ticks appear when all participants in the group have received the message. The two blue ticks only appear when all participants in the group have read the post.
Selecting the message info option shows when all the members of the group read the message.
WhatsApp has rolled out the changes to all variations of its app, across iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Nokia S40, Nokia S60 and BlackBerry 10.
