WhatsApp will let you hide your connection status so your contacts won’t know if you have the app open, according to WaBetaInfo

One of the most requested features seems to finally come to WhatsApp. According to WaBetaInfothe application will allow your users to hide their connection status.


The option that is under development would be available in a future update of the application, without an estimated date for its launch at the moment. The option would allow users to use the app without their contacts knowing they are inside the app, perhaps in other chats.

WaBetaInfo He even released an image with a look at what the setup would look like, which is as follows:

The image shows that there will be several possibilities when configuring the privacy of the connection status. It can be hidden from people who are not contacts, from all contacts, or from specific contacts, which makes sense if you take into account that recently the app enabled the ability to hide last connection time, status and profile picture to specific contacts.

The capture corresponds to the development of the function in iOS, but the media assures that there will soon be a test for Android and also for PC.
