WhatsApp is the most common messenger available to the users these days. Gone are those days, when we used to buy text message packs to communicate with our friends. Being a cross platform messaging application, it has penetrated so deeply that no other messenger in the market can make consumers replace this application. Many of the applications have tried selling a better product

as compared to WhatsApp to the smartphone users, but migration of users in bulk has always been a problem.

One of the important features in WhatsApp is to block someone. This feature of blocking has been implemented quite smartly in this app. Hence whenever a user gets blocked, he can still send the messages to the one who has blocked him. However, the messages will not be received by that person and the blocked person can never be sure whether he has been blocked or the recipient is out of network coverage or if recipient’s smartphone is malfunctioning.

In this article, we will be telling you a trick of confirming this suspicion. Just follow the steps mentioned below and you will be able to confirm whether a user has blocked you or not.

Abhirup is our guest blogger on education apps and thought partner. He harbors certain thoroughly misguided self-impressions like he has a refined aesthetic sense (our website’s visuals are NOT inspired by his ideas) or that he has a deep baritone. However, we choose to ignore these as he sometimes comes up with good ideas notwithstanding the fact that they are articulated in confusing managerial jargon; perhaps explained by the fact that he is an MBA from IIM Bangalore.
