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.
How to Know Who Has Read Your WhatsApp Group Message in iPhone
Step #1. Launch WhatsApp.
Step #2. Tap on any group.
Step #3. Send a new message to the group, if you want to do fresh experiment.
Step #4. Tap and hold on the sent message, a menu will popup then tap on Info.
Step #5. Now, you will see who has read your message under Read By.
Those who haven't read your message as yet will be listed under Delivered To.
Note: When you send a message on WhatsApp, it will show:
There is another way to know who has read WhatsApp group message in iPhone.
Step #1. Follow the first three steps as mentioned above.
Step #2. Now swipe from right to left on the sent message (Text, Image or Video).
Step #3. A Message Info screen will appear.
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].
