    I really don't like this. It could be an issue if you are trying to be discreet, and not let people know you are online. And I feel its an invasion of privacy overall, we don't need anyone who DMs us to have the ability to know that we saw what they sent.

    This is why I don’t use other social medias, doesn’t matter if there’s an option to disable it, I just don’t feel that sense of safety because I already know that function is out there and could change anytime without me knowing (if I read past updates). Some people even ask you why you turned that option off. I don’t get the carefreeness when I talk to someone. But does making you know someone ignored you do anything? In most cases people just use it against you and start acting petty. Wouldn’t want to argue over a simple “seen”.

    I think it should only be implemented in DM's and groups.

    I agree, it could be just like Instagram. I don't see why this has so many dislikes though.

    I agree as long as it's something you could toggle on and off both for how YOU see it and for how others see you... especially if you could choose to change the settings per chat room... I'm not sure why so many people are down-voting this though :/

    Yes please make this happen ! I want to know if people ignore me, i often get the wrong idea when i see people online and they don't respond to my messages especially if they are very close friends

    I think this feature should (at least) exist within DMs and group chats. If this is also possible for servers too, then be my guest.

    I can see one or two privacy issues but it's a good idea as a whole

    I think it's a really good idea, so I upvoted! And I agree about the dms' thing because servers can have over 10k people lol ^0^

    Maybe this could be something you could turn on for other people to see that you've read their message, but definitely not on by default. That would be horrific.

    Oh yeah, never thought of that. Well, Discord, when we have our invisible status on, make it so that the other end cant see if we seen the msg

    It's a no for me.

    If people would actually be relaxed about it and understand that some people reply on their own time (as I do only with specific friends on messaging platforms that have this) I would consider it. But more often than not this is not the case and it leads to unfortunate situations.

    Anyone who wants this feature because of the practicality aspect they can just react or actually reply anything. If they want this feature for other reasons then they are part of what causes the unfortunate situations.

    People who argue against the creation of a read/seen function seem to have ignored the very frequently repeated idea that this function should be optional (ie. opt in to use the feature).  So why be against it, if the feature is only turned on if both parties want to use it?

    Maybe some people don't even want another person to ask them to approve the feature being turned on between them?  So you could create a setting that blocks people even sending a request to turn the feature on.

    If your message is a dark grey (in Dark Mode) then that means the message is currently in the process of being sent. When it gets to its usual not-white, that's when the server has received the message and is publicly displaying it.
    This feature is more obvious on phones or other devices that can have spotty connections.
