Yes, Its Possible To Turn off The Read Receipts
Earlier this week, Twitter decided to introduce read receipts on their DMs, a feature that has already taken place on WhatsApp where the app let’s you know if someone has read your messages to them.
While there’s nothing wrong with this feature, there may be some instances when you don’t want the other party to know you’ve seen their message and have chosen not to reply straight away… You know, to protect their feelings and all.
WhatsApp does help you turn these receipts off, to help you avoid not talking to people, hurting the feelings of the people you don’t reply to.
But should you turn off read receipts, you won’t be able to see if the other recipient has read your message or not.
