How to Read WhatsApp Messages without Blue Tick

Written by Thirumalraj

This post will show you how to read WhatsApp messages without blue tick. The methods below work for contact and group chats.

I use a PC (Windows 11), iPhone, and Android. Let’s begin.

Read WhatsApp Messages without Blue Tick on iPhone

If you’re using an iPhone, follow any of the methods below.

Method #1

You can read WhatsApp messages without opening the WhatsApp app using this method.

Open “Notification Center.” You can read WhatsApp messages here.

That’s it.

Method #2

Here are the steps:

  1. Close the WhatsApp Messenger app if it is open and turn on airplane mode.
  2. Open WhatsApp and read the messages.
  3. Close WhatsApp and turn off airplane mode.

Read WhatsApp Messages without Opening or Sender Knowing on Android Phone

If you’re using an Android smartphone, follow any of these methods:

Method #1

Here’s how you can place a WhatsApp widget on the home screen:

Long press the home screen and choose “Widgets.” Scroll down to the bottom, and you will see “WhatsApp.” Hit it.

Press the “WhatsApp 4 x 2” widget and drop it on the home screen.

That’s all. Resize it if you wish. From now on, you can view the WhatsApp message you receive in the widget.

Method #2

Unlock your Android device if it is locked. Swipe down once, and you’ll see a WhatsApp message in the notification.

Read Messages without Blue Tick on WhatsApp Web

If you’re using WhatsApp Web, follow any of the below methods.

You can view the last message of the conversation on WhatsApp Web’s left sidebar.

Here’s an alternate method to view messages without blue ticks:

Open the WhatsApp Web and turn off your PC’s internet connection. Please open the chat, read the messages, and close the WhatsApp Web.

That’s all.

Why Disabling Read Receipts Feature Isn’t a Perfect Solution?

You can do the above task by turning off read receipts. But it isn’t a satisfactory solution and here’s why:

  • If you disable this feature, the sender won’t know that you have read their message. But the same is the case for you when you send a message to someone.
  • This one won’t stop the read receipts sent for WhatsApp group chats.
  • There’s no way to do this for an individual chat.

All this makes “disabling” it a non-perfect solution.

That’s all.

Thanks for reading.
