How to check read receipts

Check marks will appear next to each message you send. Here's what each one indicates:
  • read receipts sent
    The message was successfully sent.
  • read receipts delivered
    The message was successfully delivered to the recipient's phone or any of their linked devices.
  • read receipts
    The recipient has read your message.
  • The second check mark appears when a message is delivered to any of the recipient's linked devices, even if their phone is off.
  • In a group chat, the second check mark appears when all members have received your message. Two blue check marks appear when all members have read your message.
  • Read receipts reset when you edit a message, so you can see who viewed your updates.
