Now you can see non-English news...

How come they did not think of it before? This is about to be the new WhatsApp feature Israel today


According to a US report, Instant Messaging app developers are trying to allow users to compare the level of exposure to that of the "recently seen" option • The downside (or advantage, depending on how you look at it):

Who does not know this?

You worried that no one would see when you were last logged in to WhatsApp by checking this option, but still the people you avoid can see that you are logged in while using the instant messaging app, and then all this secrecy goes down the drain.

Well, not anymore!

While we have no idea how this has never been done before, the app developers are exploring the possibility of incorporating a feature that will hide your online status.

According to the website Wabetainfo, which specializes in scoops from the WhatsApp segment, this weekend revealed a screenshot of the requested feature, taken from a beta version of the iOS app.

As you can see from the screenshot, the user can choose from whom to hide their online status: from all their contacts or compare the level of exposure to that of the "recently seen" option (thus blocking anyone who is not one of their contacts, or certain contacts ).

Also, anyone who chooses to hide their online status will not be able to see when other users are connected in real time.

So when will this new and necessary function be launched to the general public?

It is not known exactly, as she is currently undergoing internal testing and experience.

However, estimates are that within a few months, if we want to, no one will know if we are connected to WhatsApp.

In other words: eat heart, Stokers!

Were we wrong?
