Good news for those who like to use social networks and messaging apps without being bothered. WhatsApp will allow users to disable their online status, without necessarily having to block a contact.

It’s not hard to find people who are interested in the feature that makes it possible to not contact some people, without having to block them. The user is not always in the mood to start a conversation and just wants to browse the app unnoticed.

Currently, anyone can see who is calling and when the contact has been “on” on WhatsApp, and the ability to indicate if certain content has been forwarded and read. There is no denying that, in an emergency or assistance situation, knowing if contact is available (online) is of paramount importance.

Companies monitor employees online on WhatsApp to charge fees

There is an option to disable Last Seen, which is in the same space as the Online status. However, it seems that this possibility launched years ago has not gone beyond the calm that users are seeking.

Many people complain that companies and close colleagues monitor their access (last seen and online) to check availability and bill them. The situation is quite uncomfortable and generates pressure on the users.

Determined by the WABetaInfo portal, testing of a novelty that allows users to deactivate “online” has already begun in a beta version of the application. However, there is still no release date for this feature.

WhatsApp will launch a new function that gives users freedom

WABetaInfo has found a new update in the beta messaging app backup for Android phones.

As per the information, the new feature will enable export of message history backups. WhatsApp will receive a new option that will allow you to extract files. This way, the backup will not be limited to Google Drive.

However, since it is still under development, there is still no expectation of when the new one will be released for users of the messaging app to enjoy.
