what does the spinning icon indicate for an online contact



So here is the dilema. When I send a skype message to a contact that is online on their Android phone, sometimes I get a spinning icon for long periods of time. My assumption is that although they are online and the skype app is running in the background, they have not entered skype, and therefore not actually received/downloaded the message?


Am i correct? My assumption is based on the idea that I never get a reply to a message until after the spinning icon has dissapeared. ie: that have not seen it yet.


To avoid confusion, I guess the most specific question is... Does an skype contact online on their phone, actually have to view your conversation, before the spinning icon will dissapear from my screen. yes or no?


Any help, opinions will be appreciated. Thanks
