WhatsApp is testing a new feature that allows clients to hide online status
WhatsApp developers have been testing and adding a few new features like the ability to look for messages by date and viewing status from the chat list. Presently, WhatsApp is supposedly testing a new feature that will allow clients to hide their online status from others.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, the feature is right now accessible to a handful of users who have signed up for the Google Play Beta Program and have updated to WhatsApp beta for Android 2,22,20.9.
To find the new feature, clients should open WhatsApp settings and go to the ‘Privacy’ section under ‘Account’ and actually take a look at the ‘Last seen and online’ option. There are two options to browse under the last seen and online.
The ‘ Everyone’ option is pretty self-explanatory and how about we see everyone check whether you are online or not. The second one changes the online status to ‘same as last seen’, and that implies just the individuals who can see your last seen will actually want to check whether you are online. In the event that you have set your ‘last seen’ to no one, nobody will actually want to check whether you are online.
It seems as though the developers are right now carrying out the new feature to a few beta testers. In the event that you can’t update to WhatsApp Beta version 22.214.171.124, v126.96.36.199 is additionally viable with the update.
Be that as it may, there is no word on when the update will be carried out to other beta testers, so it could take some time before it is accessible in the normal version of WhatsApp.
