WhatsApp can show when a message has been read

This is not necessarily very healthy, but WhatsApp makes it possible to indicate very precisely when a message has been received, and above all read, by a recipient. To get this information, which will especially interest the most impatient, nothing could be simpler:

  1. Direction the message in question;
  2. On Android, keep it pressed, press the "..." at the top right, then "Info";
  3. On iOS, swipe the message from right to left;
  4. On Windows, click on the small arrow at the top right of the message then on “Message info”
