WhatsApp is working on a new “stealth mode” that hides your online status. This feature will allow users to use the app without their friends or contacts knowing.
According to WABetaInfo, who first discovered the feature, there may be various reasons why people want to use WhatsApp incognito: for example, some users want to use WhatsApp without being disturbed by other people, or they feel being chased by someone.
WABetaInfo discovered the feature in beta for iOS, but claims it will also be available for Android and Desktop.
“Unfortunately, this feature is in development, so we don’t know the details about when it will be released to the public,” WABetaInfo wrote in a blog post.
And WhatsApp introduced another feature last month that allows users to take their message history with them when switching from Android to iPhone.
WhatsApp users can safely transfer the application data to the iPhone using the “Move To iOS” application available in the App Store.
Move To iOS is already used to switch other phone data including contact details, photos and videos, but it has been updated to include WhatsApp data.
