How To Disable Read Receipts On Whatsapp


Its no longer news that whatsapp notifies when a message has been read. To some , this is a perfect tool to know who is snubbing. To others , this is a great disturbance to how they chat and interact with people. Personally , I’m not cool with it. I have a lot of chatmates on whatsapp and because of my busy nature I can’t reply everyone at the appropriate time. Reading without replying will make it seem like I am a snub and could affect my relationship with my chatmate.


A lot has been said about this. Some people wants this feature to be disabled while others want it to stay. Whatsapp have somehow managed to balance the equation and come out with a solution that is beneficial for everyone. They have provided an option to disable Read Receipts (Blue Lines).
