WhatsApps Comes With The New Feature To Hide The Read Receipts

Within just few days after the release of read receipts feature with blue double A Whatsapp App logo is seen behind a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone that is logged on to Facebook in the central Bosnian town of Zenicaticks in WhatsApp, the company has given an ability to users to de-active the feature from the settings. The latest version 2.11.44 of WhatsApps with this new support is initially only available on the WhatsApp site, but it is expected to be rolled out very soon to the Google Play as well.

The read receipts notification can be disabled by the user from privacy settings. Also the new version involves support for heads-up notifications, which is been introduced in Android 5.0 Lillipop.

WhatsApp early this month updated the app with a new ‘read receipts’ feature, letting users know when the messages sent by them were read. Once a message is read, the two check marks next to it turn blue. For any message that you send, you can now also see a Message Info screen that displays the details of when your message was delivered, read or played by the recipient(s).

In a similar move, in February, WhatsApp had rolled out a much-requested feature – the ability to hide the ‘last seen at’ timestamp. The feature was widely welcomed by users who did not want to display their app usage activity to others. When introduced, hiding the ‘last seen at’ feature was initially available via the company’s website, before being made available on Google Play.
