Read Status and Location Message Available on the Twilio API for Whatsapp Beta

Starting today, read message status and location message are available to all developers building on the Twilio API for Whatsapp. 

  • Read message status: When an outbound WhatsApp message is opened by the end user, this will generate a status callback indicating the message was read. Read status will also be shown in the message logs and the Message Resource API. See our documentation for more details.
  • Location message: You can now send location messages over Whatsapp, by including the PersistentAction parameter in your API requests. Location message is currently only supported in Session Messages. See our documentation for more details.
