Whatsapp messenger is the most popular mobile messaging app used by all of us daily. There might me a situation during exam days or while doing some important work where you need to deactivate WhatsApp account. First you need to understand what deactivation of Whatsapp means. Deactivating Whatsapp Account is not the same as the Facebook deactivate feature rather it means you could put your Android WhatsApp in a hibernate stage or non-active mode using Greenify app. You would not receive any new message notification but when you would open your WhatsApp Application manually you will receive all your notifications as normal. To understand it in deep have a look at how WhatsApp messaging works.
How WhatsApp Messaging works?
The working of WhatsApp cloud messaging is quite simple. When a user sends a message to another user first the messages reach the WhatsApp servers and then reaches the user whom the messages have to be delivered. Whatsapp shows different check-marks next to the each message you send. Each of them has some different indication. The first single check marks indicate that the message has been successfully sent. Double check marks show the successful delivery of the message to the other user. In latest update, whatsapp has also introduced blue ticks which show that your message has been read by the other user.
If the message has been sent by the sender at 2.pm and the recipient phone has switched off/flight mode or doesn’t have a data connectivity and the receiver switches on his phone at 4 pm then the message would be delivered at 4 pm and you would see double ticks. This is all how WhatsApp messaging works.
