How do I know if someone who is on "Invisible Mode" on Skype gets my messages?

[ Edited ]

I sent a message to someone on "Invisible Mode" on Skype but how will I know if they actually have read it?

If you send a message to an 'Invisible' person on Skype, the ring will appear next to the message for a while when it sends, but then it'll disappear when the person receives it. If you try sending a message to a person 'Offline', the ring will be there until the person signs in.
Unfortunately at the moment, Skype doesn't notify you when someone reads the message, but it'd be a good idea for Skype to include that!

Hope I helped :happy:

in other words, there is a way to know if the message has been delivered, but there's no way to know if the other party have seen/read the message.

If using an iPhone or iPad Please delete App then reinstall it and logon to Skype. You will be able to see the photo (if provided), time and location (if checked) as well as number of contacts in view profile (if checked). If any of these 3 items are visible then your contact is in 'invisible' mode. If you send a message you will see a time stamp appear on the right hand side. This indicates that the person has received your message. Obviously there is no provision to indicate if he or she has read your message. I personally assume that people are curious and have read your message. I stumbled on to this accidentally and am very happy to share this information. I can also speak from experience that when you confirm this then delete that contact because a real friend will not be dishonest and hide from you in 'invisible' mode. Why do people add you as their contact if they don't want to communicate with you. What's the point. Just move on and only keep the honest people as contacts. Since I found out I have deleted all my invisible friends. My Skype life is a whole lot better. It's easier to advise someone that you are having a personal conversation by using other buttons like 'busy'. Hope this helps. Aladdin.
