How Do I Inspire to Write About Whatsapp Check Marks?

Let me first share a short story that inspires me to write about Whatsapp single and double ticks, what their gray and blue colors indicate, how to enable or disable them, etc.

After using Whatsapp for a few months, I was sitting with my wife, and she told me why I didn’t reply even after reading my messages.

Honestly, I was stunned and asked her how do you know that I have read your messages?

She made a very awkward expression to me and replied, are you trying to fool me?

Now, the matter was going out of control, and thus I have told her that I didn’t reply due to some urgent work, but I am still curious to know how you know that I went through your messages.

Later, she explained that when check marks turned blue, it means your sent message is being read.

This is how I came across this super feature.

So, this post was totally dedicated to those who don’t know what these Whatsapp ticks are.
