A few months back WhatsApp introduced read receipt feature – the two blue tick marks that make senders know that their message has been read by the receivers. While it is easy to know whether or not your message has been read in individual messaging, it is just a bit tricky to find out who has read it and who has skipped it in group message in WhatsApp on iPhone.

At times, WhatsApp users may require to know if their group message has been read by all or not just in case the message is very important for everyone. If you are unaware of this little trick, here is how you can discover it.

Here, you can check who has read your message. This feature was not available in previous versions of WhatsApp; the feature is included in its recent update.

There are times users may want to keep their privacy of not checking out any delivered message for certain reasons. Though WhatsApp has allowed Android users to stop showing read receipt, it hasn’t done it for iOS users. Fortunately, there is a smart Cydia tweak called “WhatsApp Read Receipt Disabler” that allows iOS users to disable read receipt with ease.

If you don’t like WhatsApp’s read receipt feature then you can easily disable read receipt on WhatsApp in iOS 8 [Jailbreak needed].

    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?
