The feature has been actively worked on for several months and is now finally available for beta testing. It’s hard to say when the innovation will appear in the stable build. The implementation process can take several months.
The new function will allow you to hide your status “Was (a) today at N o’clock” (“last seen”). You can create a black list of contacts or just specify certain contacts so that they cannot see your status. At the same time, if you limit your status for someone, then you will no longer be able to see his status either.
Recently, developers have also found evidence that WhatsApp is working to implement Communities with admins.
