Some of us might have been annoyed with Whatsapp’s ‘double blue ticks’ feature that lets users know when their messages are read. With the addition of this feature one could not simply lie to the other person saying “I didn’t read your message”.

Luckily WhatsApp released this quickly and did some quick fix to disable the “double blue ticks” feature. The app added a new option called ‘Read Receipts’. When enabled this feature will not show the blue tick marks even if you have read the messages. To enable/disable the double blue ticks option, go to ‘Privacy Settings’ and enable/disable the ‘Read Receipts’ option.

This new updated version of Whatsapp is not yet available in Google Play store and hence has to be manually download the WhatsApp 2.11.44 version. Currently this version is available only for Android users.
