Whatsapp Introduces New Privacy Feature

WhatsApp is introducing a new privacy feature that lets you turn off the privacy settings for certain contacts. This feature will be available in a future WhatsApp beta update for Android 2.21.20.10. To take advantage of the new update, users must do the following: "Settings > Account > Privacy > Recently Viewed > None."

Facebook's messaging service WhatsApp introduced a new privacy feature on Wednesday that allows you to disable privacy settings for certain contacts. WhatsApp announced this news on its official Twitter account. The messaging portal wrote: "Settings > Account > Privacy > Recently Viewed > None."

Previously, WABetaInfo - the main independent portal where you can find news and updates in real time for WhatsApp - announced this update on Twitter. This feature will be available in a future WhatsApp beta update for Android 2.21.20.10.

Previously, the Facebook messaging app had three privacy settings (last seen, profile picture, info) with three options (all, my contacts, none) to manage those settings. So, if you don't want certain contacts to see your last seen, you need to set your last seen privacy setting to "None".

A screenshot of the new WhatsApp update for privacy settings looks like this on WhatsApp for Android. - WABetaInfo.

As you can see in this screenshot, the "My contacts except..." option looks like this and will now be available in the upcoming WhatsApp beta update for Android 2.21.20.10, but requires an active internet connection to configure WABetaInfo.
