When you send a message on WhatsApp, whether it is a text, voice or video message, you will be able to know the exact time and time that the other person read it, this applies only to sent messages and not to those you receive, much less to messages deleted from WhatsApp.
You also have the option to view the information of a sent message, from a mobile with Android or iPhone system, as it is a feature of WhatsApp for any operating system, including the Web version, although of course the method of seeing the time your message was read can vary a little according to the system.

A very useful tip you should know is that from WhatsApp Web, you can also see live when the other person reads your message, know their last connection and other similar data in the same way as on mobile. Of course this is possible according to the configuration of each user.
Is it possible to know if someone read your WhatsApp message if they have the double check disabled?
It is unfortunate to know that it is not possible, since if a user disables read confirmations, no person will be able to know if they read a message. This applies to both parties. That is to say that by using this privacy setting the sender of the message will not be able to see if it was read, nor if you receive a message the sender will not be able to see if you read it.
There is also a very useful trick to know if someone read your WhatsApp message even having the check disabled, but it is necessary that you both have a group in common, since it is possible to check the reading confirmations in WhatsApp groups. Because it does not apply to them. It is recommended to send a test audio to the group in common and enter the message information, in order to check that person is active and reading your messages.
What steps should you follow to see at what time you read the message sent to you by WhatsApp?
It is not necessary to follow any step to see the time you were sent a message, because in the messages you receive you can see the time right next to it, if you have not read the message it is displayed in your notifications, and it turns into ‘Bold’ in the chat bar.
If it is a very long conversation and it has been a long time in which many messages have accumulated, you will notice that when you slide the chat up the date is displayed in a small floating window, then you should only see the date at the top and the time of the message is the corner of it.
