    RUMOUR CONFIRMED: The WhatsApp FAQ site explains the new feature.

    What's with the Blue Checkmark in WhatsApp?-screen-shot-2014-11-05-3.58.13-pm.png

    Apparently, it's only available to beta users, but will be rolling out very soon.
    Also rumoured: HD Voice Calling by early 2015.

    Oficial whatsapp support statement:

    Ahmad Q (WhatsApp Support)
    Nov 05 15:03

    Hi,

    Here is an explanation of the check marks that appear next to your sent messages:

    One gray check mark : message has been sent.
    Two gray check marks : message has been delivered to the recipient's device (not necessarily that the message has been read, just that the device has received the message).
    Two blue check marks : the recipient has read your message.
    In a group chat, the two blue check marks will appear when all participants in the group have read your message.

    Because of how different devices handle background tasks and notifications, the second check may appear right away, even though the user may not have launched WhatsApp. Unfortunately, it is not possible to turn off the appearance of the blue check mark at this moment.

    If you see only a single check mark next to your message, there is likely nothing wrong with your WhatsApp or your phone. There may be several reasons why your message is not being delivered (2 checks). Learn more about this issue at our FAQ.

    Ahmad Q (???? ?)

    You can see the details for the message status by long-pressing it, and selecting Message Info. That way you can even see the exact time when users have read your message, even in Groups.

    Exactly like one of the suggestions on Icanmakeitbetter for BlackBerry. *shrug*

    It's just a third stage of a delivery, that BBM has always had.
    Sent to server, Delivered to recipient and now read by recipient.

    Next up they'll probably add the Snapchat feature.
    They just did it better, you can now know when the person ( what time) and also they implemented it in group chats, which Kevin talked about earlier, BBM doesn't have that!

    It will be interesting to see how BlackBerry responds. Especially with BBM as one of their main business units!

    Edit: And before you start saying Whatever you have to say.. I know two check marks means the message has been delivered, but this time it turns blue after a while.. so read before you post your ignorant comments..

    Hmmm I always thought double checkmark is read status. Not too intuitive iconography I guess.

    We definitely need this on BBM groups, plus inline photos like a older Beta

    BBM is always online so the "missing" features you call them are not relevant.

    You will notice soon after your discovering, when the time comes. Some or most of the any type of smartphone end-users has received their blue checked marks like my myself for an example.

    Just one quick note on blue checkmarks...
    If you're running a recent version of WhatsApp on BlackBerry 10, then whether or not you get blue checkmarks in your conversations has more to do with whether the person you're chatting with is running a recent version of WhatsApp.
