Hot on the heels of Whatsapp’s acquisition announcement, Whatsapp updated its Android app adding new features. The version 2.11.169 brings one of the most sought feature – hiding the ‘last seen’ status. The updated Privacy settings now allows users to show or hide their last seen status like the iPhone and even show or hide the Profile photo and status. Users can adjust these settings to hide or show it from everyone or just reveal it to their friends.
Few other changes we noticed in the new build is that notification icon does not popup for muted groups in the notification panel and media files now show the download size if you’ve set it to manually download.
The updated Whatsapp is available from their website but should hit the Play Store in a few days as well.
