WhatsApp is a large social media platform with about two million monthly active users worldwide! That’s an impressive track record, don’t you think? However, this isn’t one of those overnight success stories; WhatsApp has offered valuable service and support to its users over the years to be where it is today.
For example, when the platform was launched, not many people knew about it, let alone used it. WhatsApp was launched in 2009, while WeChat and Telegram were launched in 2011 and 2013, respectively. Following these launches, both platforms rose to success, and millions of users signed up daily.
Soon, the hype of these platforms died down, all while WhatsApp was just another mobile app in a sea of chatting platforms. WhatsApp finally gained popularity in 2015, but less than four years after that, the platform had already reached the two billion users milestone! Now, that’s what you call a proper rise to success!
Read on till the end of this blog to find out if it’s possible to know when a person is talking to you and someone simultaneously on WhatsApp.
Can You Tell if Someone is Chatting With You and Someone Else at Same Time on WhatsApp?
Let’s get straight to it: Is it possible for you to find out if someone is talking to you and someone else at the same time on WhatsApp?
We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but there is technically no feature on WhatsApp that tells you when someone is texting you and another person simultaneously. Although you might think how great such a feature would be, that’s not correct.
Not only is the idea of such a feature ridiculous, but it’s also a huge invasion of privacy. WhatsApp has built its reputation as a platform that respects its users’ privacy. Such a move will spoil years of hard work and updates.
Let’s say that you recently met someone new and have been talking to them for quite some time now. Your best friend doesn’t approve of this new person and always speaks negatively of them. If you were talking to them and your friend simultaneously, your friend will find out if this feature was introduced.
This feature doesn’t sound so good now, does it?
However, don’t worry. We won’t hang you out to dry; we’re here to help you. There are a couple of signs when someone is chatting with two people at once on WhatsApp. And while these aren’t sure proof that they’re talking to someone else, they are pretty strong indicators that shouldn’t be ignored.
If this sounds like something that could be helpful in your case, read on to learn all about it.
How to Tell if Someone is Chatting With You and Someone Else at the Same Time on Whatsapp
The first and most obvious indicator is the speed of their replies.
If this person is close to you or you’ve chatted with them for some time now, you’ll know the general speed of their replies, right? So, if they’re taking longer, one can safely assume they’re busy replying to someone else.
However, for this to be true, they must be online on WhatsApp, but not replying/slowly replying to your message. If they’re not online, you can’t expect them to be talking to someone else. At least, not on WhatsApp.
