You Can No Longer Ignore Whatsapp Messages, enter Green Ticks

0

“Sorry, I was busy.. I did not see your message”, or “Sorry, your message may have not delivered.” Do you often use any of these lines to get off from people who are just nagging?

Well WhatsApp has found you guilty  and has henceforth denied you the right to lie, ignore or shun away from a conversation with the new WhatsApp green ticks.

By Perseverance Tavagwisa
For those who have the latest version of WhatsApp, or those who have recently updated the instant message application, you can now see that there has been a change in the ticks and this is the new snitch to simply betray you.

 

  • The feature is available on WhatsApp messenger across all mobile platforms
  • A single grey tick means the message has been sent, a double grey tick means it has been delivered, and two blue ticks mean it has been read
  • Pressing and holding an individual message shows the Message Info option
  • Clicking this reveals the precise time that particular message was read 
  • In a group chat, the second ticks appear when all participants in the group have received the message.

    The two blue ticks only appear when all participants in the group have read the post.

    The app update is available across all mobile platforms.

    From now, a single grey tick means the message has been sent, a double grey tick means it has been delivered, and two blue ticks mean it has been read.

    In a group chat, the blue ticks only appear when all participants in the group have read the message.

    To see what time the messages were read users can now press and hold down on a particular post.

    Selecting the Message Info option then reveals the time the message was read, and in the case of group messages, what time each member read it.

    WhatsApp has rolled out the changes to all variations of its app, across iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Nokia S40, Nokia S60 and BlackBerry 10.

    Users need to update the app on their devices to see the changes.

    However, these changes have divided opinion, especially on Twitter.

    Some users are concerned the update makes it harder for them to ignore others, and makes it easier for people to keep tabs on them.

If you only see a single check mark next to your message, there is likely nothing wrong with WhatsApp or your phone. There may be several reasons why your message has been sent, but not delivered to your chat partner:

  • Their phone might be off.
  • They could be sleeping, especially if they live in a different time zone.
  • They might be experiencing network connection issues.
  • They might have seen the notification on their screen, but did not launch the app (especially common if the recipient uses an iPhone).
  • They might have blocked you. For more information read this article.

 

I hate to say this, but I really dislike unsolicited messages, that it makes me hate WhatsApp. I find these as distasteful as the same people who (having nothing else to do) like to bombard others with spam messages or let alone send messages which not at all deserve attention.
