One of the most awaited features by users is about to be released on Whatsapp. According to information from WABetaInfo, the messenger should soon launch the function to hide online status.
Initially, the function will be released to WhatsApp Beta users, for testing and tweaking. It will then gradually be made available to all users of the traditional application model.
How will the new tool work?
According to the information, users of the Whatsapp will be able to use the messenger without leaving a trace that they are online for their contacts, which is great for those looking for a little more privacy.
The way in which the new service will work is still not exactly defined by the company responsible for the messenger. However, it seems that users will be able to disable their online status through the “Privacy” tab.
It is necessary to remember that there are already ways to hide your profile online, through third-party applications. However, an alert should be made about the risks that the user may run in installing these applications, as they are often invasive.
WhatsApp off cell phones in 2022
In fact, the most used messaging application in Brazil will stop working on some models of devices in the coming days. This is because the new application update will not be compatible with older operating systems.
THE list of cell phones that will be without whatsapp in 2022 is extensive and includes the operating systems best known by Brazilians, such as iOS, Android, KaiOS, among others.
Whatsapp justifies the decision as follows:
“Like other technology companies, every year, we analyze which are the oldest devices and software with the fewest users to define those that will no longer be compatible with the Whatsapp. It is possible that these devices do not include the latest security updates or do not include functionality necessary to operate WhatsApp.
