Goodnews for Whatsapp users!!! Whatsapp now lets you disable the seen function on messages after just a few days of existence

WhatsApp blue ticks: messaging app lets users disable 'read receipts' to keep their sanity


Last week WhatsApp introduced ‘read receipts’seen function as on Facebook in the form of two blue ticks, letting users know if their message or picture had be seen by their chatting partner.

However, it seems that this wasn’t a universally popular move and WhatsApp is now introducing the option to disable this feature if they want to keep the nagging out of their conversations.

It’s only available to Android users who have downloaded the new beta version of the app, but those that have can go to Settings > Privacy > and disable the ‘Read Receipts’ option to banish the blue ticks when you read other people’s messages.

The update was first spotted by Android Police, but plenty of people were apparently upset by the inclusion of the receipts.An update will roll out to iOS and Windows Phone users soon.
