Read Receipts feature has existed for a long time in the stock Messages app for iPhone. With iOS 10, the messaging 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. What do you think of it? Share your valuable feedback in the comments below.

  1. 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?

  2. 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.
