Hey Whatsappers, Get ready for an exclusive new feature. But this new feature will now be available for iOS users. The instant messaging app is all set to provide its users a great privacy option that was the most awaited one. Now users will be able to hide the last seen status from some specific contacts. You must agree to the point that sometimes we don’t want that anyone from the contact list can see when we were last active on the app, right? For this, earlier we used to hide the last seen using the feature.
WhatsApp is rolling out a new privacy feature for iOS users.
But this hiding applies to all contacts. So now Whatsapp has understood this problem of ours and now you can hide last seen from some specific contacts while making it visible for the rest.
Right now this feature is available for android users as well but only on beta versions. But now this feature will also be available for iOS beta users.
Those who have signed up for the beta program will be able to use this feature.
One can now hide the “Last Seen” status from specific contacts.
This can be a useful feature for those who just want to hide their “Last See” from a few people. There are times when you just do not want anyone to know when you are online. Currently, WhatsApp offers only three options to hide the Recognition of Contacts. All options are self-explanatory.
- The first is Everyone, which means your last one will be visible to everyone. The second is My Contacts. If you select this, WhatsApp will display your last visibility only to those who have stored their number in your phone’s address book.
- There is also a third option, “No one.” This means that if you do not want anyone to know while you are online for the last time on WhatsApp, you can choose this option.
- WhatsApp is now exploring another option, My External Contacts. This will allow users to disable the last view of certain people. This is in the testing phase and only beta users can try it.
The feature can be tested by beta users of WhatsApp.
Besides, WhatsApp recently confirmed that it will soon increase the file-sharing size to offer users more convenience. In a blog post, WhatsApp revealed that users will be able to share up to 2GB of files. Currently, the maximum file sharing size for videos, voice messages, and photos is not more than 16MB. For documents, WhatsApp allows you to exchange up to 100MB files in size. Comparatively, other popular messaging apps like Telegram let you share files of up to 2GB in size.
