Generally, the messenger goes ahead of competitors, launching new features that are not yet available in other applications. But, as every rule comes with an exception, so far it has not been possible to see who has read your messages in Telegram groups — a possibility that has been present on WhatsApp for a long time.

The feature was released through a post on the messenger’s official blog in the last Sunday (19). As detailed by the Telegram, the novelty is compatible with “small” groups — a concrete number for this limit has not yet been informed.

In addition, the company made it clear that it has no interest in maintaining all records of what the user sees. Therefore, read receipts will only be available for 7 days after sending the message. For now, the function is restricted to the mobile version of the messenger. To understand how to use it, check the step by step below.
