WhatsApp introduced blue ticks and check marks in 2014. Now, the small green or yellow boxes that appear next to some messages on your chats say what they mean! Facebook NextPit explains how these new features work for you.
You may have seen messages with checkmarks, which are used to show the status of your message. The little emblem changes over time and can tell you when it’s been read or not checked at all!
The little clock symbol next to the checkmarks when sending a message on your phone means that it’s being sent, but hasn’t departed yet. This can change quickly and you might not see this state for long periods of time due to Switch messaging or other apps using up all available bandwidth.
How to Check Read Receipts
Each message you send will have a check mark next to it. Here’s what each of them means:
- The message was delivered successfully.
- The message was successfully delivered to the phone of the recipient.
- Your message has been read by the recipient.
The second check mark has just appeared!
When you send a message in group chat, it will be delivered when at least two people have checked their box. This means that all members are now recipients of your message and can read its contents if they choose to do so-two blue dots mean everyone’s seen what was sent. 😊
