Red dot showing on contacts (2023)

From what ive learned its basically a feature that acts like Facebook Messenger instead of regular text messaging (being able to see if your text is read and so-on)

Hello, I recently have been getting red dots, much like the blue ones, on my contacts list.

PS, it just turned blue for a LOT of my contacts now
