How does WhatsApp send messages?
When sending texts, the bottom right corner of the message will display a small clock icon. When this shows, the text is not yet sent. If your message reaches WhatsApp’s servers, it displays a single tick. When the text reaches your recipient’s smartphone from the servers, a double-tick appears. The blue ticks mean WhatsApp was opened and the recipient read the message.
Images, videos, and PDFs all include these symbols. If you try to call a recipient, you will see the usual phone interface and WhatsApp will say that it is “calling”, but there will be no response. The main WhatsApp interface will appear after enough time
