There is evidence that WhatsApp is working on including a feature that would allow users to mask their online status. Users could select who can view their online status on the instant messaging app using this feature. In a subsequent version, it’s likely to be accessible. Separately, it has been alleged that the Meta-owned firm is changing the window within which beta testers can remove messages. The function is present in WhatsApp for Android version 2.22.15.8, which is accessible through the Google Play Beta programme. Furthermore, a context menu for Windows beta is reportedly being rolled out by WhatsApp.

WhatsApp’s newest feature in more detail

According to reports, WhatsApp is changing how long messages may be deleted for everyone. The messaging app is reportedly sending out the upgrade with the 2.22.15.8 beta for Android through the Google Play Beta programme. According to the source, WhatsApp is raising the time limit for the “Delete for Everyone” feature from the current one hour, eight minutes, and 16 seconds time options to two days and 12 hours. Users might remove messages that were sent in error with the longer time frame.

Besides that according to a claim by WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo, the messaging app, which is owned by Meta, is working on a feature that will allow users to hide their online status from certain contacts. Once available, this functionality will allow users to control who can view their online status directly from WhatsApp Privacy settings. A screenshot of the updated privacy setting functionality is included in the report. According to rumours, this feature is being worked on and will probably become available in a later version.

On Windows beta, a new context has been released in addition to the option to hide the online status and time limit extension. Users who have downloaded the newest WhatsApp beta version 2.2225.2.70 for Windows from the Microsoft store can utilise this functionality. The report includes a snapshot of the updated context menu to help users understand the shortcuts available. The pate, undo, and select all text options are there, as shown in the screenshot. You can format text to be bold or italic. Before the official release, improvements to the functionality are anticipated.
