Read receipt

Read receipt is a feature that allows users to know whether their messages have been read by other users in the channel. The UI for read receipt appears in the MessageListComponent of ChannelModule. If a user’s message has been read by all the other users in the channel, a colored double-tick icon will appear above the message’s timestamp. Read receipt is only visible to the sender of the message.

Note : In order to use this feature, you must first create a channel and enable the chat service. To learn how to allow users to chat in a channel, refer to the Chat in a group channel page.
