An even better way to hide from your boss or ex
In the current stable release, WhatsApp only allows for three options for sharing your Last seen status. You can either let everyone with your number see it, only people saved to your contacts, or nobody. The new solution makes it simple to keep sharing your Last seen status with the vast majority of your friends and family members, while giving you the option to exclude people you definitely don’t want to know you’re on WhatsApp during work hours.
Other messengers have long solved this problem, albeit with their own twists. For example, Telegram reverses WhatsApp’s approach and lets you choose specific contacts that you always want to share your Last seen status with, which makes more sense to me. That way, you can curate a small list of trusted friends and family members, which seems simpler to me than singling out all your business contacts, overbearing parents, and other individuals you don’t want to share your status with.
Right now, this change to Last seen sharing hasn’t rolled out widely in WhatsApp, though, as the functionality is part of a server-side switch. If you want a chance to get in on the rollout early, you can download the latest WhatsApp beta version over at APK Mirror. Usually, you’d also be able to sign up for it via the Play Store, but it looks like the official testing program is currently full.
Better wait a few days if you want to get a Google product
