Assuming you are asking how to tell if someone has read your text message on Android, there are a few ways.
One way is by looking at the timestamp next to the conversation. If the time reads ‘Seen’ then that means the person has read it.
Another way is through notifications. Typically, when you send a message, you will see ‘Sending…’ followed by ‘Sent.’ If the person receiving the message has read it, you will instead see ‘Delivered’ beneath your sent message.
Lastly, some messenger applications have specific icons or emojis that appear next to messages once they have been read (ex: a blue checkmark).
What are the benefits of using iMessage?
iMessage is a popular messaging service that allows users to communicate with one another without incurring charges from their mobile service provider. The app uses an Internet connection, either through Wi-Fi or cellular data, to send and receive messages. Because iMessage uses the Internet, it offers some advantages over traditional SMS text messaging.
One advantage of iMessage is that it doesn’t rely on your mobile phone number to work – meaning you can use it even if you don’t have a SIM card in your phone. This also means that your messages are associated with your Apple ID instead of your phone number, so they can be retrieved on any device signed into your account (such as an iPhone, iPad or Mac).
Another advantage is that iMessage supports group chats natively. With SMS text messaging, you can only add other people to a conversation if they all use the same carrier; but because iMessage uses the Internet, anyone with an iOS device or a Mac running macOS Mojave or later can join in on the fun.
And finally, perhaps the most significant advantage of iMessage: it provides end-to-end encryption by default. That means every message you send is encrypted before it leaves your device, and can only be decrypted by the person receiving it – not even Apple has access to view its contents (unlike WhatsApp which stores unencrypted backups of message histories online).
How to tell if an Android user is using iMessage
It’s easy to tell if an Android user is using iMessage. If you see a green bubble next to their name instead of a blue one, that means they’re using iMessage. You can also tell if someone is using iMessage by the way their messages appear in your conversation view:
If all of your messages appear as green bubbles, then you are both using iMessage. If only some of your messages appear as green bubbles and others appear as blue bubbles, then the person you are messaging with has multiple devices and is sending/receiving messages on more than one device.
How to tell if an iPhone user is using iMessage
One of the great features of iMessage is that it tells you when the person you’re messaging also has an iPhone (and iMessage). If you see a blue bubble instead of a green one, that means your friend or family member is using iMessage.
What are the differences between iMessage and Android Messages?
There are a few key differences between iMessage and Android Messages. One is that iMessage uses your data plan whereas Android Messages uses your SMS plan. This means that if you have an iPhone and you want to message someone with an Android phone, you’ll need to use a third-party app like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger. Secondly, iMessage offers many more features than Android Messages. For example, you can send GIFs, stickers, and images within an iMessage conversation whereas with Android Messages you’re limited to just text and emoji. Finally, Apple’s ecosystem is much more closed off than Google’s which means there are fewer options for cross-platform messaging when you’re using an iPhone.
