WhatsApp New Features

Key Specifications:

  • WhatsApp rolls out the much-awaited Hide Online Status feature
  • The Company brings this feature to Android Users
  • Once you turn off your Online Status, you won’t be able to check others

Instant Messaging Platform WhatsApp has rolled out a new privacy feature for users. The messaging app now allows you to hide your online status in chats, which is one of the biggest updates. This is the most wanted feature that WhatsApp lacks.

WhatsApp brings Hide Online Status Feature for android users

The new functionality will let users hide WhatsApp contacts to see when they are online or using the app. However, if you turn off the Online Status feature for your friends, then you also won’t be able to check out their online presence. This is similar to how the Last Seen feature works and you will find the latest update in the same section.

However, every feature also has a disadvantage, and this one too has one. With the latest privacy update, WhatsApp is making it difficult for people to understand if someone has blocked you. If a user hides all three privacy options (Online, Profile Photo, and Status) in the Privacy section of the app, then it will be difficult for a person to identify the blocked status.

How to Activate Hide Online Status on WhatsApp?

Step 1: You first need to open the WhatsApp app and tap on the three-dotted icon placed in c the top right corner.

Step 3: You will now see the “Last Seen and Online” feature. Tap on it and then select Nobody and the “Same as last seen” option. When you tap on “Nobody,” you will be able to hide the online status from everyone. You can also choose the “My Contacts” option, then your online status will only be available to your contacts.
