WhatsApp’s triple blue check does not exist: the supposed new function is a hoax already denied by the company

The popularity of WhatsApp means that any possible development on this messaging platform quickly becomes a cause for disagreement. There has been talk for some time about a potential “triple check” on WhatsApp.

These rumors have reappeared in recent days, but they are false. There is no official confirmation from WhatsApp – whose managers already denied this possibility months ago – nor have there been any indications that it could be a future option, which had probably been uncovered in the analyses of beta versions that appear frequently. .

WhatsApp “checks” or “ticks” have always been a valuable help for its users. From the original symbol, we went on in 2012 to discover how a mysterious double check appeared in WhatsApp messages.

Nobody was very clear then what it meant, and people believed that it was received when the recipient had read the message.

Those responsible for WhatsApp themselves had to clarify it on Twitter (now It was only confirmed that it had been read when the double check turned blue , a feature that arrived in 2014 .

The new rumor has been pointing out for months that this platform would be preparing a third check. What would it be used for? Theoretically, to show that a screenshot of the conversation has been taken.

The option would be available both in conversations with a person and in WhatsApp groups, and as we say it would allow the chat participants to know if one of the other participants had saved an image of those sessions . Although screenshots can be taken, there is no sign indicating to chat participants that this has been done, and there appear to be no plans for that to change.

Already in 2022, WhatsApp responded to a user who asked about that option. According to those responsible for the platform, the rumor was circulating on Twitter and “it is not true.” The feature has never appeared in official WhatsApp information or in any beta version, which are usually the ones that reveal future options of the service that will later reach all users.
