WhatsApp may soon allow you to hide your online status
The report says that WhatsApp may soon allow users to hide their online status. A screenshot has been shared by WaBetaInfo that suggests that the feature is very much under development.
How will the feature work?
Users will have the option to choose with who they can share their last seen status. WhatsApp will add two new options — “Everyone” and “Same as Last Seen”. The report explains how the feature will work. You could choose “My Contacts” for “Last Seen” and “Same as Last Seen” online. This will ensure that anyone who isn’t on your contact list will not be able to see if and when you are online.
The screenshot shared by WaBetaInfo is on the beta version of WhatsApp on iOS. However, the feature is expected to come to WhatsApp for Android and desktop as well. By when the feature will roll out is not known as of now since the feature hasn’t even come to the beta version of the app.
Last year, WhatsApp introduced a similar feature but that was meant for how users interact with businesses. In December 2021, WhatsApp revealed that it was “making it harder for people you don’t know and haven’t chatted with from seeing your last seen and online presence on WhatsApp.” However, this was meant for anyone who a used had never previously messaged. In case, a user had a conversation with anyone then he/she/they could’ve seen when they were online.
