WhatsApp Is Experimenting A New Feature That Allows Users To Hide Their Online Status!
The ability to search for messages by date and check the status from the chat list are two new features that WhatsApp engineers have been testing and implementing. According to recent reports, WhatsApp is testing a new function enabling users to hide their online status from other users.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, the functionality is now only accessible to a small number of users who have updated to WhatsApp beta for Android 2.22,20.9 and have signed up for the Google Play Beta Program.
Users must go to WhatsApp settings, navigate to the “Privacy” section under “Account,” and select the “Last seen and online” option to access the new function. Under the last seen and online categories, there are two choices.
The “Everyone” option lets everyone see if you are online or not and is relatively self-explanatory. In the second, your online status is changed to “same as last seen” so that only people who have access to your last seen may determine if you are online.
No one can tell if you are online if you have set your “last seen” to “none.” The new feature is currently being introduced to a small group of beta testers by the developers. WhatsApp Beta version 184.108.40.206 is compatible with the update; however, version 220.127.116.11 is also supported.
It may take some time before the upgrade is made accessible in WhatsApp’s standard version because it is unclear when it will be distributed to other beta testers.
