As you know, WhatsApp is a messaging application for Android and iOS, which allows users to send and receive messages over the Internet, complementing email, instant messaging, short message service or multimedia messaging system. In addition to using text-mode messaging, users can create groups and send each other images, videos and audio recordings.
According to the data of 2016, WhatsApp has more than 1 billion users, with 100 million more than Facebook Messenger.
WhatsApp new feature allows us to see the exact time when a recipient read a message
Now, a new feature will enable users of WhatsApp, the popular real-time messaging application, to know the precise moment when a recipient reads (or at least seen) the message sent to them.
Until now, a blue double check icon was activated when the receiver opened the message, but with this new feature in WhatsApp will make it possible to see the exact time of reading.
Here’s how to use this new WhatsApp feature
This tool will be applied even to those who have the read confirmation function disabled and also to conversation groups.
Once the message is sent, the user must press on this text until a series of icons are activated at the top of the screen. There, between the options to highlight (a star) and delete (a trash can), a letter “i” will appear inside a circle, which must be pressed to see the reading time.
The WhatsApp platform, created in 2009, has more than 1 billion active users and is by far the most popular instant messaging app Facebook owns.
For those who didn’t yet know, Facebook Inc acquired WhatsApp in 2014 for $19 billion, the largest acquisition ever made by Mark Zuckerberg’s company.
In short, WhatsApp keeps on innovating and implementing new features. Now the renowned instant messaging app added the possibility for us to see when a recipient reads our messages.
