WhatsApp is one of the world’s most used app for messaging. It is so spread out that people forget about the other messaging apps available. WhatsApp has billions of users so far, and we can say that it rules the world at the moment. In fact, this is one of the first apps that people choose to install on their mobile phones.
However, one thing that not every WhatApp user knows is the fact that the app has a few useful tricks. Now, we are not going to bore you with all the hacks available for this app because most of them have already been shared on the internet before. However, there is one hack that every WhatApp user needs to know. This trick is going to make your messaging life much easier, so let’s go into details.
Disable Read Receipts in WhatsApp
Is the Read Receipts feature enabled on your smartphone? If yes, disable it. Why is due to the ability to see whether the person you are sending the message to is reading it or not. Read below to find out more. Here’s how this feature works. If you disable the read receipts feature, then the messages you send won’t turn into blue. The color of your message will remain grey, similar to the color of the message that gets delivered.
But, where is the actual trick, you may wonder? To check out if the other person is ignoring you, you need to send a voice message. It doesn’t matter how long; it can be as short as one or two seconds. If the person on the other end is playing the voice message, then the ticks will turn blue. Keep in mind that if the ticks don’t become blue, it means that the other person has not read your message yet. Disabling read receipts will impact only the read text messages. The audio files are not included, which makes the hack working.
