Explaining the tick marks on Whatsapp messenger – Blue is the new deadly
Since the new update of Whatsapp, users can observe the new Blue check marks
in their conversation thread and It is quite dazzling that Why is it so ? Because you might have observed the Grey check marks earlier, the single check used to denote that your message has been sent whereas the double check marks used to denote that your message has been delivered to the user.
But Did you wonder that How could you get to know that the recipient has actually read it or not even after the message was delivered.
If you see two blue check marks next to your sent message then the recipient has read your message. In a group chat or broadcast message, the check marks will turn blue when every participant has read your message.
Please note that you are advised to check for an update to the app, so that you can actually experience the new feature.
Single Grey Tick – You have sent the message and the message was successfully stored on the Whatsapp Messenger’s Server to be retrieved by the recipient.
Double Grey Check Marks – Your Recipient has connected to the internet and has retrieved the message from the Whatsapp’s server. That basically means that your message was delivered to the user’s mobile phone. But It has yet to be read.
Blue Checks (the new swag) – Completes the procedure of sending and tracking. In simpler words, your message was read by the person on the other side, (he/she has opened the conversation screen and has read your message).
Status changes to “Played” for audio messages if the receiver has played the audio clip you sent.

does double grey ticks mean the person is browsing on his phone but has not open his whatsapp?
I see double grey ticks on messages I sent but the receiver is to be (I assume) sleeping and phone should be off. other times when that is the case I only see on tick which I know the phone is off or out of range.
