WhatsApp is constantly bringing new features for its users. And once again this Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp is going to roll out another new feature in which users will be able to hide last seen and status for selected contacts.
You can now hide Last Seen and Status for selected contacts on WhatsApp
Currently, in WhatsApp, No one, Everyone, and Only contacts are the only three options available to hide any status and last seen. However, users do not get the option to hide them from selected people in the contact list. For this reason, we can expect that this feature will also be rolled out in WhatsApp in the future.
New changes happening in WhatsApp
According to WABetaInfo, the instant messaging platform is making changes to its privacy settings. With this change, users can be given the feature to hide their last seen, status and profile photo from selected users. It is also being told that this feature is being tested in beta versions of Android and iOS.
In this new privacy setting, users will be able to select their last seen, profile photo and status from four options. Now the fourth option that will be added to these settings – ‘except My contacts’. This way, users will be able to show their last seen only to specific contacts and can disable it for the rest.
Before this, some time ago WhatsApp rolled out a great feature of View Once for all its users, in which users can send photos and videos and the receiver in front can see them only once. Along with this, this instant messaging app is also testing some other features, one of which is Emoji Reaction and it can be rolled out on the desktop first. (You can read the full report here).
