Currently, users of Whatsapp can choose to display their "Last Seen" information to contacts, some chosen people, or no one. A future version of the app will enable users to follow a similar approach to the online toggle. The new privacy feature is being developed at the same time. WhatsApp is developing another crucial feature- the ability to edit a message. In the recent past, the platform has introduced different features for group voice calls, like messaging participants, muting, along with banner notifications while in a group call.
