WhatsApp new feature enables users to hide profile picture, last seen from specific contacts
MENLO PARK – Meta-owned instant messaging application Whatsapp finally allowed users to hide their profile picture, last seen, and info from specific contacts.
The tech giant earlier made these features available in a beta version, and now rolled out to all its users on both Android and iOS devices.
Previously, the users had three options, Everyone, My contacts, and Nobody, for displaying profile photos, last seen, and About info. The previous options are updated by a new feature which is “My contacts except".
