In recent times, WhatsApp has been testing a lot of new features in order to enhance user experience. The WhatsApp latest feature spotted testing is that the users can hide profile pictures from selected people of their contact list. Currently, users have the option to hide their profile pictures from all contacts, everyone, and nobody. It is expected that WhatsApp users will soon include the “My contacts except…” option to the list.
As per a report published by WhatsApp features tracker Wabetainfo, we found that WhatsApp is testing a feature that will allow users to hide their profile pictures from selected contact on the Android beta version of the app.
The WaBetaInfo report said that “We showed the screenshot where it was possible to see the new “My contacts except” option for Last Seen, but we have also declared that the same option would have been released for Profile Picture and About as well. In the new WhatsApp beta for Android 126.96.36.199 update, there are new hidden tracks about this privacy option.”
Previously, WhatsApp was spotted testing the feature on the iOS beta app. The “My contacts except” option for a profile picture is being tested for the profile pictures but it would also be expanded to the Last Seen and About Status updates as well.
