Ever since its existence, the mobile messaging platform giant has caused alot of heated argument regarding snub or not replying chats after delivered “double marked” shown
Most people, since 5years ago, believed that the “double mark” shown on sent messages on whatsapp signalled “READ”. As a matter of fact, it only meant DELIVERED. Until the latest update for Android.
BBM sent signs are clearly readable with ‘D’ – Delivered and ‘R’ – Read. unlike Whatsapp which only show ‘√’ – SENT and ‘√√’ – DELIVERED. WhatsApp has never concerned itself with being read or not. But the sender can assume read when the LAST SEEN is later to the delivery time.
As seen in the image below,
Whatsapp latest version on ANDROID now changes the delivery mark to BLUE once it has been read. The unread messages will remain the usual black ‘√√’ till read.
As at the time of this article, Imustalk Media haven’t confirmed the feature on other operating systems (Blackberry, JAVA, Windows, and IOS).
