Project Description📖 < 1 min read
No sooner than October 5, you’ll be able to see when your Google Chat direct messages have been seen. This will only apply in active chat windows for 1:1 conversations on Android, iOS, and the web. In these messages, you’ll see the avatar of the person you’re chatting with to the right of the last message they’ve seen.
|See when your Google Chat message has been read|
Read receipts will show a sender when a message has been read by the recipient or if the recipient has replied to a message from a notification. Read receipts won’t be visible in group messages or rooms.
This feature was previously available in classic Hangouts and is now available in Google Chat.
Stay tuned on the G Suite Updates blog for more information on exact timing.
