Tells you if someone read or is replying to your text

This would be handy because I will know if my friend has read the text yet and is too busy to reply currently. It will also be nice to see if my friend is replying so I can wait for him message before I send mine.

        This isn't possible for SMS. RCS support will come eventually, so this should be closed since there is a suggestion for RCS already

        Well the new stock android messaging app has this built in now. it would be nice if it is open for third party apps to start using it. then all apps could have it and would get the notifications regardless of the app being used.

        This is a wasted vote. SMS simply doesn't have this functionality. The only way this could be implemented would be if the message read status was sent separately via the internet to a 3rd party textra server. The recipient of the message would obviously need to be running textra.

        But if you were doing that why not just send the message via the internet too? Well because then you'd just have another WhatsApp clone and not an SMS app...

        I would love this!! At the very least, maybe this feature can be implemented when the recipient is using Textra too.

        It is only possible to know of the person received the message. It's impossible to know if he is reading it or replying to you. Google it, impossible x)
