WhatsApp is committed to finding new features to better manage its account and privacy. The social network is currently testing a feature that allows better control of his personal information and connection status, warns Phonandroid relaying information from WABetaInfo.
On WhatsApp, it is possible to check the last connection of one of his contacts. This leaves the possibility of seeing if a person has had time, for example, to see your message, without replying to it, or simply to monitor their activity. In the future, an option will allow better control of this aspect of the platform.
Thus, a user will be able to allow anyone to see this last connection information, or leave this possibility only to his contacts or even restrict it to some of them. But be careful, if you prevent a group of people from seeing your activity, the converse will be established. Two other sections of the profile are affected by this setting: the photo and the bio.
The feature spotted in the code of the WhatsApp application by WABetaInfo is expected to appear soon in a new update on iOS and Android. The specialized site recently discovered another novelty that will soon appear on smartphones. It is about the possibility of reacting to the messages of its correspondents, other than by a response, specifies Frandroid. Like Facebook, Messenger or Twitter, it will soon be possible to add a simple emoticon to a message.
