Single grey tick, double grey ticks, double blue ticks- we know these signs and what they mean, like the back of our hands! When you see 1 grey tick, your message has been sent; 2 ticks of the same color, the recipient has received it. The two blue ticks ultimately indicate that your intended audience has seen the message! Mission complete!
We eagerly wait for the ticks to change to blue, but hey, WhatsApp has tactics in place that make it difficult for each user to spot those blue ticks. Do you get what we mean?
You see how we can all turn off our read receipts, right? It means even if someone sees your message, there’s no way you’d know about it using the blue tick formula. You need to look for cues, and that’s pretty much about it.
We understand that uncertainty and confusion may cloud your judgment. However, we have answers here. So, buckle up and stick with us until the end.
What Does it Mean When i Can See a Person’s Profile Picture, Last Seen and Status on Whatsapp but Only 1 Grey Tick?
We’re here to handle the issue you raised, but first, let’s use a round of elimination to clear up one existing confusion. Does it sound good?
Well, with this question, there’s this one dreaded question in almost every user’s mind: Am I blocked? But this can’t be the case because when you’re blocked, you can’t see the person’s profile picture, last seen, as well as their status.
Hence, don’t stress about it. With blocking out of the way, we’ll investigate the many meanings of the single grey tick on WhatsApp. Are you prepared to dig in? Let’s do it now.
The recipient isn’t online
Yes, there are situations when the cause is that obvious. Simply said, the user is not active on WhatsApp! Now, you may wonder whether they’ve not opened WhatsApp yet or their internet is turned off.
You see, the one circumstance where the one grey tick may display is if the person’s internet is turned off. If they have turned on their data or wifi, the one tick becomes two grey ticks.
In such cases, you must wait for the person to be online, so the single grey tick changes to double grey ticks or blue ticks, indicating the messages have been delivered or seen.
Blame it on a weak internet connection
Do you know what we say when the lone grey tick pops up when you send a message on WhatsApp? It’s what we refer to as the “let’s blame it on the bad internet connection” situation. It’s a temporary glitch, so be patient, and soon enough, that grey tick will turn to two!
