Just a few days back, WhatsApp introduced a new feature that turned the double tick marks of the delivered messages to blue as soon as the recipient read the message. This created hype around and since then people have been coming up with various jokes and taunts over WhatsApp’s this latest feature. Some have been saying that more break-ups are on the way, and some have been saying that “Last Seen” wasn’t enough. This new feature has sure caused trouble to a lot of people, who at times to do want to reply people having their last seen turned off, but what will they actually do if the last seen thing isn’t of any use, because one you’ve read the message, the tick marks are going to turn blue and other person is going to know whether you’ve read the message or not, and you’re left with no choice except making a lame excuse or replying the person as soon as you read the message.
There are some unofficial and modified versions of WhatsApp, which immediately came up with the solution to this blue double tick mark. OGWhatsApp and WhatsApp Plus allowed the users to turn it off and hence, the users who knew about these applications got rid of it, but just today, WhatsApp has decided to introduce a feature officially, that allows the users to turn off the Double Blue Ticks. Once you’ve turned it off, others won’t be able to know about the read status of the message anymore.
