WhatsApp New Features: You’ll be able to hide your last seen status from certain people on WhatsApp soon.
WhatsApp New Features: When it comes to allowing users to change their last seen status, WhatsApp has traditionally taken an all-or-nothing approach. You may adjust the privacy settings right now to allow everyone, your contacts, or nobody to see when you were last online on the messaging service. WhatsApp will soon let you choose who should not see your last seen status and conceal it from them, according to a fresh claim from tipster WABetaInfo.
How to Hide Someone’s Last Seen Status on WhatsApp
According to the article, WhatsApp is working on a “My contacts except…” option for the Last Seen privacy setting, which can be found under Settings -> Account -> Privacy -> Last Seen. You may choose which contacts to conceal you’re last seen from, similar to how you can hide your WhatsApp status from acquaintances. This option will be accessible for profile pictures and settings as well.
WhatsApp’s new feature achieves a decent balance between keeping a safe distance from acquaintances and allowing users to stay connected to the people who matter to them. It should, at the absolute least, help to prevent unpleasant conversations, and it will most likely come as a huge relief to people who are averse to small chats. Now that we’ve arrived, a feature that allows us to hide our “online status” would be great.
You will not be able to see the last saw status of individuals you conceal on WhatsApp, as is always the case. That’s a reasonable trade-off, given that you’re not sharing yours with them. The option to hide you’re last seen from particular persons is still under development and will be accessible in future versions. The functionality is currently unavailable on the WhatsApp beta channel. We will notify you as soon as this occurs, so stay tuned for further details.
