So the fresh-from-the-oven GBWhatsApp V2.18.203 builds on its older versions with the addition of:
- Lets you hide when you were last seen. That gives you more time to think of what to reply or makes it less obvious that you don’t want to respond to a message right away.

(a) a single grey tick says you have successfully sent your message.
(b) two grey ticks mean the other person has received your message.
(c) two blue ticks signal that the other person has read your message. Note: the two grey ticks will turn into blue ticks once the message is read. With the modification, you can control the activities others will know of.
