WhatsApp recently added some smart features to their updates that some people have not yet known. The ones we are familiar with include; the new Snapchat status feature, the privilege of sending document files, etc.
You might want to check out some of our articles on how to save WhatsApp status pictures and videos or effective ways businesses and entrepreneurs can makeuse of WhatsApp.
There is this particular feature that we are not aware of that I found out on their recent update and this feature is: “knowing the number of persons that have read your post in a group” and “the number of people that a WhatsApp group message has been delivered to”.
This is very important in that some people might claim not to see the update you wrote on a WhatsApp group simply because they don’t want to be guilty of anything.
Let us look at this scenario; as a secretary of a firm, you send a message on your official WhatsApp group that requires everyone to be present at a meeting at a particular time. Someone or some people might willingly refuse to attend with the excuse that they didn’t see the notice.
With this feature, you can simply know if they actually saw the message or not. If the person came online within the said time, you can easily find out if a message written in the group was delivered to him or her.
