There are more and more improvements to WhatsApp, according to WaBetaInfo According to the discovery, the latest direction is to allow users more flexibility to select contacts who can see the “last online time”. One of the features of WhatsApp is that everyone and contacts can show their last online time, or no one can see it at all. However, this time it was discovered that there were more options for “My contacts, except…”. This is for people who will add work partners, friends with anxious personality, or people who are not familiar with them at all. Users can set their own permissions according to the needs of different circles of friends.

A similar approach is actually added in some WhatsApp settings, such as dynamics and groups. This time it can be said to be extended to more practical places. Of course, the function of this online time is two-way and fair, that is, when you don’t show the last online time to a certain gentleman, you will naturally not be able to see the other person.

The report did not mention when the relevant features will be officially launched, but seeing the screenshot of iOS, I believe the development progress is also smooth.
