Today it is difficult to imagine a life without WhatsApp, since the instant messaging application has made it easier for us to communicate with the world and be in contact with those who are far away. Similarly, WhatsApp gives us tools to know when someone has already received or read a message. But, did you know that we can also know how long they have left us “in sight”?

The “In seen” It is a tool with which we have control of our messages and we make sure that they are received. But it also allows us to know the exact time a message was read. To do this you just have to follow a step by step within the application, without external apps and completely safe.
How to know how long they have left you “in sight”?
In each message you send, whether in group or individual chats, they give you the option to see the information you need on your screen, including the time it was delivered or read.
1. Open the individual or group WhatsApp chat.
2. Long press on the message you want to get details about (if it was already delivered or read).
3. Click on the three dots that are in the upper right part.
4. Enter the option Info.
5. Here you will see three tabs: Sent, Delivered and Read, with the exact time of each one.
That is how simple you will know when your message was read or if the contact has not yet done so, and not worry about whether he has left you “in sight”.
