Today Whatsapp rolled out a backend update to all their messaging clients (from iOS, WP, Android to even S40); where users can now tell when a message has been read. The new feature turns the “delivered” checkmarks blue once the message has been read, similar to the”R” in BBM or the “Seen” in facebook messenger.

This new feature is sure to cause some commotion in teenage girl’s lives as Kaitlin now knows that Catlin ignored her message.
