‘Privacy’ Tab showcase
- Hit on ‘Options’ inside Whatsapp and select ‘Settings’
- Inside ‘Settings’ tap on ‘Account’ tab
- Now inside ‘Account’ tab you will see ‘Privacy’ tab that is where the ‘Last Seen At’ option sits
- Now inside ‘Privacy’ tab you’ll see options to hide your ‘Last Seen At’, ‘Profile Picture’ and even ‘Status’
If you change ‘Last Seen’ as Everybody then you also won’t be able to see ‘Last Seen At’ of other contacts too. But incase of ‘Profile Picture’ and ‘Status’ you can see others too.
Another new feature that can be seen in the new Whatsapp update is you can see the time a status has been updated. So for example if one of your contacts updates his status 5 minutes ago you’ll see ‘Status (5 Minutes Ago)’ just like shown in the picture below
We’ll update this space as soon as this new Whatsapp update is uploaded to Google Play Store.
