WhatsApp is working on its most essential and most awaited feature, reportedly in development for a quiet time. This new will let you configure who can see you’re last seen, and this likely helps a lot since it only restricts certain people know when you are online.

Currently, this feature isn’t live and is currently in beta. This feature will likely be available in the coming weeks and likely to be first debuted on iOS. According to the report, this feature potentially is a feature in Android and Desktop versions.

WhatsApp is getting the feature to let users hide “last seen” from Specific users.

You can configure these settings from WhatsApp by navigating to WhatsApp Settings, Going to account, and then heading over to Privacy, from where you can be made the change to your Last seen according to your preference.

Currently, WhatsApp only has the option to change from Everyone, My Contact, and Nobody privacy for the last seen Status, which makes it quite complicated since after disabling it, you won’t be able to read the recipient, despite reading the status and blue ticks.

WhatsApp “My contacts except” Status for Last Seen

This gives you the power to select whether or not to let your know what your last used. After this feature, WhatsApp users will have abilities to limit seeing information from such individuals. WhatsApp is also working on privacy features for both the Profile Image and the about section.

Not to mention, one of the most basic features is still missing from WhatsApp. Other messaging features like AOL instant Messenger have similar characteristics in the 90s and early 2000s.
