You’ve probably seen the blue dot on your Android phone before and wondered what it meant. The blue dot is actually a notification that lets you know when you have a new text message. It’s a handy way to keep track of your messages without having to open the app all the time. While the blue dot may be helpful for some, others may find it annoying. If you’re in the latter camp, there’s good news—you can disable the blue dot notification in just a few steps. Read on to learn how.
Android text messaging
If you’ve ever sent or received a text message on your Android phone, you may have noticed a small blue dot next to some of your messages. This blue dot is called a “read” or “delivered” receipt, and it indicates that the message has been read or delivered to the recipient’s device.
You can turn off read receipts for all messages, or just for individual conversations. To turn off read receipts for all messages:
Open the Messages app
Tap the three dots in the top right corner
Turn off Read Receipts
The blue dot
The blue dot on Android text means that the person you are texting is using iMessage. iMessage is a service that allows you to send and receive texts, photos, videos, and more over the internet. It’s a bit like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, but it’s specifically designed for use with Apple devices.
How to use the blue dot
If you’re using an Android phone, you may have noticed a blue dot next to some of your text messages. This blue dot indicates that the message is new and unread. To read a new or unread message, simply tap on the blue dot. The message will then open up and you can read it. You can also reply to the message by tapping on the reply button.
What the blue dot means
The blue dot next to a message in your Android text app means that the message is unread. When you see the blue dot, it means that you have not yet opened or read the message. The blue dot will go away once you open and read the message.
Other features of Android text messaging
In addition to the blue dot that indicates unread messages, Android text messaging also has a few other features that are worth mentioning. For one, you can easily customize notifications for each conversation, so you’re only notified when there’s something new to read. You can also set up message templates for those times when you need to send the same message to multiple people. Finally, Android’s text messaging app integrates with other apps on your phone, making it easy to share photos and other media without having to leave the app.
If you’re wondering what that blue dot next to your text messages on Android is all about, it’s simply a read receipts feature. When you see the blue dot next to a message, it means that the person you’re chatting with has seen your message. This can be useful if you’re trying to gauge whether or not the person you’re talking to is actually paying attention to the conversation. However, keep in mind that not everyone likes having their read receipts turned on, so it’s always best to ask before assuming.
