How to check if the receiver blocked or deleted you on WeChat?

If you send the receiver the message, but Exclamation mark appears before the messages and pops up that, "The message is successfully sent but rejected by the receiver", then you are blocked by him/her.

On Android, go to "Settings" > "Apps" > Select "WeChat" > "Permissions" > Turn on "Microphone".
