How To See If Someone is Typing To You in iOS 7


In Facebook Messenger when someone is typing to you after a conversation is started you can see a typing notification before you receive the message, which can be tiresome if someone forget to write after he started and after a long wait all you get is “OK” or “Hmmm”. The same thing can be happen in iOS 7 but not in Facebook messenger only or iMessages only, it has been expanded to any page in iOS. A small banner will appear on Status Bar if someone is Typing to you or if someone has read a Message of yours. Once you enable this Feature it is hard to get back on the Previous way.
