WhatsApp is adding a new set of privacy options, allowing users to hide “last seen” from specific contacts. This comes with the option to hide your online status from certain people.
Leaving annoying groups has become easier, and WhatsApp lets you silently leave a group without anyone knowing. No more worrying about people messaging you personally asking about the reason for leaving a group.
