If you are one of those people who thought the double check marks next to messages on Whatsapp meant they had been read by the recipient, like me, you too were wrong.
Dont worry… the Facebook owned company have just unveiled a nifty new feature that actually breaks it all down for users. A double check mark means the message has been delivered to the recipient, and a blue double check mark means the message has been read.
For group conversations, the double blue appears once all participants have viewed the message. This has been an over air update for iOS and Android phones and not part of a planned update.
