WhatsApp announced a new feature on beta version 126.96.36.199 for Android. The company added the option to hide your last seen status last year. WhatsApp now lets you hide your online status from others if they don’t want to be seen by them.
How to hide your online status on WhatsApp for Android?
You can hide your activity status with the new WhatsApp beta for Android version 188.8.131.52. You can open settings, and in the privacy section, you will see it in the last seen and online options. This feature will prevent people from seeing your availability info. Now, users can choose the last seen and online features for all contacts, only selected contacts or nobody.
WhatsApp aims to keep privacy for users. Indeed, WhatsApp online status to hide should have come earlier, maybe with the last seen feature simultaneously. However, WhatsApp’s updates about privacy make users glad, and this is also an excellent feature waited by users. We will probably see this feature soon in new updates for all Android devices.
