Every time they introduce a new feature, WhatsApp keeps improving its ease of use and convenience. Recently, Whatsapp added emoji reactions and the option to hide media files when a user uses the self-destruct feature. It is now planning to add yet another feature that users have requested. The ‘Last Seen’ status will soon be hidden from specific contacts in WhatsApp for iOS.
This feature has been in the works for quite some time on the instant messaging platform. According to recent reports, it will soon become available for iOS users. In the current state, the users have only three options. “Last seen” is visible to anyone, contact or no contact.
The last seen status can be hidden from specific contacts with this feature. The users will be able to hide the last seen status in various ways with this feature. In addition to the privacy control features for profile photos and About sections, WhatsApp also plans to enhance privacy for profile photos.
The beta version of 184.108.40.206 will bring the feature to iOS users. The Last Seen section of the app’s privacy settings will be replaced with an option called “My Contacts Except…”. This feature will be available to iOS users soon. We hope that it will be rolled out very soon for them.
WhatsApp is also launching WhatsApp communities, another important feature. Many groups will be united under a single Community following the launch of this new feature. Messages can be sent or updates can be made in one go, which is helpful for people. One message does not need to be pasted into each group chat separately.
