We’ve known it’s been coming for a while, but it’s now also spotted in WhatsApp beta: the ability to hide your online status. You can now disable people who know you read something and when you were last online, but now you can hide that you are online when you are in beta.
A big advantage for people who like to keep their privacy and don’t like to be seen by others when they use WhatsApp. If you participate in beta From WhatsApp and version 188.8.131.52 on your phone, you can try something like that. WhatsApp previously made it possible to show the “last seen” status of certain people in your address book, but now your online activity has been added to that, something that people who don’t do blue checks will appreciate.
You will soon be able to use WhatsApp without anyone seeing that you are doing it. Although you can still see that someone is writing. The additional connection status can now be completely hidden. The cool thing for Android fans is that iOS users were earlier thought with the new option, but instead it will debut this weekend in Android beta.
