How To Know If Your WhatsApp Message Was Read or Not Without Blue Ticks

With WhatsApp touching the 200 million mark on the number of active users, the Facebook-owned cross-platform messaging app, back in 2014, launched Blue ticks feature that allows senders to know if their message was read by the recipient or not. But if you are looking for more ways to know if your WhatsApp message was read without turning on read receipts or if read receipts are disabled by the recipient, WhatsApp offers a hidden trick that can come handy.

In this blog post, we are going to tell you how exactly you can know if your WhatsApp message was read or not by the recipient who has turned off the read receipt feature or the blue tick option.

How To Know Your WhatsApp Message Was Read Or Not?

Instead of sending a text message or media, you can send a voice clip to your receiver. Even though read receipts are disabled, you can still know whether the clip has been heard or not with the help of the blue tick. If you long-press the voice message and go to its Info, then you will be able to know the time of reading.

Although this simple trick is useful, it may also be irritable since your receiver could smell something wrong with the constant flow of the voice clips over WhatsApp. That being said, the voice clip message will display blue ticks only after the voice clip is heard by the receiver.

By default, the read receipt option stays on. But you can always disable the read receipts by navigating to the WhatsApp Settings > Account > Privacy > Toggle between the Read Receipts header.

Under the Read Receipts option, you will notice a disclaimer by WhatsApp which reads:

“If you turn off read receipts, you won’t be able to see read receipts from other people. Read receipts are always set for group chats.”

Secondly, read receipts remain active by default on group chats. So, if you want to know if your message was read by someone without relying on the read receipts, make sure you share a common group with that person.

WhatsApp recently announced the deactivation of the messaging app on older smartphones and Android versions. The beta channel hosts the latest bits directly from the headquarters and you can experience the new features before the public rollout. The constant updating of the app is vital not only for the performance but also for privacy.
