How to know if my WhatsApp message has been read

Who does not know WhatsApp? It is possibly one of the most used and important applications nowadays. A very interesting and useful app about all the things with which you can stay connected in an agile way with all your acquaintances.

With this application, you can send text messages, audio, or multimedia files to all the people you have scheduled on your mobile device and who use the app.

Although one of the big doubts that many people have is how to know if they have read my WhatsApp message? Today we are going to see just this below.

How can I confirm if they read my WhatsApp Messages?

A while ago, it was not possible to know if the other person had read the message you sent him. However, now it is possible to know; thanks to one of the latest updates that came out.

What you should do is enter the chat where you want to know if they have read your message. After this, you have to be clear about what each of the checks that appear, since many people have certain doubts about it.

    • When you send a message, and a single check appears. It means that it was sent to the WhatsApp servers, but the recipient did not receive it. This may be due to several reasons- perhaps it does not have the internet, the phone turned off, etc.
    • In case two checks appear, it means that the person has received the message. Here comes a confusion that is quite normal in many people, believe that with two checks said person saw the message and does not mean that. When you have two check means you received it, not that you have read it.
    • Here comes the interesting thing: if the message has a double blue check, then it means that the recipient saw the message.

So here what you can do is the following- if you have an Android phone simply press the message for a few seconds and at the top you will see an icon with the symbol “¡” click on it, and you can see when it was delivered and read.

In the case that you have an iPhone what you have to do is simply slide the screen to the left, leaving the finger on the message to access this information.

How to Know if You Read My WhatsApp Message

What you have to take into account with the double blue check is that it does not always appear since this function is possible to deactivate it. In case the other person has disabled this function, the two blue checks will not appear, and the grays will simply appear, which means that the message was sent.

Therefore, there is no other way to know if that person saw our message. The only alternative you have in case of an emergency is to send several messages and see if your status appears online. When it appears online, it is probably because you open the application to see your messages.
