If someone is shown to be On-line in WhatsApp inside the actual Chat we previously had, does that mean they've opened that particular chat OR that they're simply "Online"??

  • It means that they are simply online. You'll be online just by opening the app. And it's WhatsApp not wassap. – MANI Apr 17 '16 at 2:52
  • @MANI Besides "wassap", I've also seen "whatsup" and "whatpp". – iBug Jun 5 '17 at 5:19

From WhatsApp FAQ - What does last seen and online mean exactly?

Online and last seen tell you if your contacts are online, or the last time they were using WhatsApp.

  • Online means that the contact has WhatsApp open and is connected to the internet. However, it does not necessarily mean the contact has read your chat.
  • Last seen refers to the last time the contact used WhatsApp.
