WhatsApp Hide Online Status Feature From Everyone Is Coming Soon
WhatsApp hide online status feature from everyone is coming soon to iPhone and Android devices. Here are the details on this.
A future version of WhatsApp could give people the opportunity to fully hide their online status from everyone, according to a new report.
The new feature is currently being developed, although it isn’t yet clear when it will be made available to everyone via the version of WhatsApp that can be downloaded from the App Store. According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp will soon let people hide their online status via the Last Seen menu.
It will be possible to configure who can see when we are online right within our last seen settings thanks to two new options: “Everyone” and “Same as Last Seen”. For example, if you choose “My contacts” for “Last Seen” and “Same as Last Seen” for “online”, it means non-contacts won’t be able to see when you’re online.
The new change will be an important privacy one and ensure that people can keep their online status away from people who shouldn’t know the last time they were using the app.
This isn’t the only change that WhatsApp is testing. The app could soon also allow people to edit the messages they send, just like iOS 16 will also add for iMessage later this year. WhatsApp is also testing changes that will allow people to react to messages using any Emoji, too.
