This has been long pending! But it's finally here :)
Read receipts allow you to know whether your message is read by the receiver. You'll be visually informed with a double tick when someone has read your message. A quick tap on the double tick will display the message read info in channels and group conversations.
Read receipts in channels and group conversations
In case of channels and group conversations, you'll be able to see the list of the participants who've read the message and the list of participants who're yet to read. To see your message read info, just tap on the double tick right next to your message. You'll see the list of participants who have read your message along with the message read time. You'll also find the Yet to read section where you'll find the list of participants who are yet to read the message.
It's a pretty easy to enable/ disable Read receipt as per your preferences in Cliq. To do so,
1. Go to Profile & Settings > Privacy > Read Receipt
2. Turn on read receipts by enabling the checkbox. By doing so, you'll be able to see who has read your message and the message read time as well.
On disabling read receipts:
In group conversations and channels, you/anyone who has read receipts disabled will always be listed under the 'Yet to read' section in Message read info.
Message senders will not know if you have read their messages or not. Furthermore, you will also not get to know if your message has been read by the receiver.
You can mark important messages you've already seen as unread to respond to later. By doing so the message will be marked unread so you can follow up later. But mark as unread option doesn't have any effect on your message read info. Even if you mark it as unread, it will still be marked as READ and the sender will be able to see you under "Read by" in the message read info.
Now follow up on the progress of your messages using Read receipts!
