WhatsApp for iOS will let you hide your ‘last seen’ and ‘online’ status

WABetaInfo is here with another preview of what appears to be a future version of WhatsApp with expanded privacy functionality. A future WhatsApp feature on iOS will allow users to hide recent activity status and even online status from some or all users.

The messaging application will allow you, for example, to hide your “last seen status” from users outside your contact list. A separate option called “Same as Last Seen” applies the same logic to your online status.

The developer team is also working on an edit button for messages and reacting to messages in a chat. In fact, some of the features are already rolling out to public beta testers. However, we don’t know when these will be available to all users.
