WhatsApp update shows read receipts, leaked image suggests future VOIP feature

whatsAppCheckMarksAlthough this isn’t an actual update to the app, WhatsApp is now sporting a nifty new feature that—although small—might make a big difference in how users of the messaging app stay in touch with their friends. Single check mark, Double check mark and Blue check mark.

As can be found in the app’s newly-updated FAQ, group chat and broadcast messages are also impacted by this change. As mentioned, this feature isn’t part of an update to the app through the App Store, but rather something that the company has pushed over-the-air to both iOS and Android versions of the app.

This change comes shortly after rumors have reignited that WhatsApp will soon be getting some amount of VOIP (Voice over IP) capability, which would let users make—assumably—free telephone calls via WiFi or cellular.
