Read Receipts feature has existed for a long time in the stock Messages app for iPhone. The stock message app allows you to enable/disable individual read receipts so that you are able to have needed control over this feature. I wish WhatsApp brought the same functionality to the messaging app to enhance the privacy of users.

  1. The best way to do is use Bag A Chat app. It gives you a report of who’s read and when. Itsn’t his cool. Download from Google play store and check it out yourself.

  2. Have an interesting situation… I have a specific whatsapp group where I can receive messages but not send. After clicking send I get a tick but within seconds it turns into a clock and the messages never leaves. Other groups are OK. Have tried to exit the group and rejoin, reboot iphone and reinstall whatsapp. None have worked so far. Any ideas?
