Reasons why WhatsApp messages aren’t getting marked as read

You should check on the following when WhatsApp messages aren’t getting marked as read.

The recipient hasn’t read the message

It may be that your messages aren’t getting marked as read because the recipient hasn’t read the message yet.

Just as with other messaging apps such as LINE, messages in WhatsApp will be marked as read only when the recipient has opened the message.

So, there is a possibility that the recipient hasn’t read the message.

Read Receipts is turned off

You should check if Read Receipts isn’t set to OFF.

There is a chance that Read Receipts is set to OFF, either on your device or your recipient’s.

You can see this by following these steps: WhatsApp -> Settings -> Account -> Read Receipt.

There is a glitch in the app

You should check if there isn’t a bug in the app.

It may be that continued use over a long period of time has caused a glitch in the app.

You should check if the same thing doesn’t happen in other apps.

The recipient has blocked your message

You should check if the recipient hasn’t blocked you.

The message may not be marked as read if the recipient has blocked you.

There is a chance that this may be the case if the message remains unread over several days.

What should you do when WhatsApp messages don’t get marked as read?

The recipient hasn’t read the message

You should just wait a bit if the recipient hasn’t read the message yet.

The recipient has his or her life too and so may not have had the time to read your message yet.

You should send another message if it doesn’t get marked as read after a day.

Read Receipts is turned off

You should change your settings if Read Receipt is set to OFF.

There is no way for you to change the recipient’s settings but you can at least turn the function on in your device if it is currently set to off.

Doing this may solve the problem.

There is a glitch in the app

You should reboot your device if there is a bug in the app.

To reboot your device, all you have to do is to turn off your device ad turn it back on after some time.

If that doesnユt fix the problem, you should reinstall the app as that may solve the issue.

The recipient has blocked your message

There’s nothing much you can do if you are blocked by the recipient.

The recipient probably has his or her reasons too.

Although it may be an accidental block so you should contact the person for confirmation.

Summary

  • The recipient hasn’t read the message
  • Read Receipts is turned off
  • There is a glitch in the app
  • The recipient has blocked your message

Those were the solutions to the main causes for WhatsApp messages not getting marked as read.

I hope the article was of use to all WhatsApp users.
