WhatsApp is working on many new features to improve the user experience. A few days ago it was reported that WhatsApp is testing a feature to hide users’ status, last seen and profile pictures from selected contacts. Earlier WhatsApp was seen testing the feature on the iOS beta app, now Messaging has been seen testing the same feature on the Android version of the app.
You will now be able to hide Status, Last Seen etc for select users on WhatsApp
According to Wabetainfo, WhatsApp is now planning to introduce a feature to hide last seen, status, profile picture and more from select contacts. The report said, “WhatsApp is planning to add last seen, profile picture, about, ‘Expect my contact’ option so that you can hide your status, profile picture and about any person.
A tracker in the WhatsApp feature has shared a screenshot of how the feature will look after it is rolled out. In the screenshot, you can see four options including ‘Everyone, My contacts, My contacts expect and Nobody’. In this way, now you can show your status to whomever you want in your WhatsApp and you can also hide it for whom you do not want to show. However, there is no information about when this feature will be rolled out.
However, it’s important to remember that if you hide your Last Seen from someone or people in general, you won’t be able to see their Last Seen either. Also you will not be able to see their WhatsApp story or status if you block them from seeing your status.
WhatsApp is currently testing the feature on its iOS and Android apps. The messaging app has not made any official announcement regarding this. It is currently in development mode and will have to wait for when it will be available.
Even before this, in recent days, WhatsApp has removed many features, one of which is the WhatsApp Multi Use feature, in which WhatsApp can be used in up to 4 devices.
