If you disable the “Read Receipt” feature, whenever you read the messages that you’ve received, the sender of the message would receive blue double-mark in their device.

According the offical WhatsApp website, you need to download the latest version of WhatsApp to get this ‘disable feature’. As for my personal experience, the WhatsApp 2.11.444 is needed.
