After there are a lot of speculations that surfaced about the privacy of the messages, WhatsApp has been working on the issue after a strong clarification was made that the messages and content of the users are extremely safe. WhatsApp is now working on a new custom privacy setting for the users of Android. WhatsApp is in plans to introduce 'My Contacts Except' option in the privacy settings and the users can set last seen for the selected or specific contacts. The feature is currently in testing mode for Android and iOS users. Some of the users have been requesting the same from some time and this would be a much-needed feature.
There are users who are not interested to show their last seen online for some of their friends or contacts. This new feature will be available for last seen, about and profile photo. Three privacy options are offered under these categories. The three options are said to be Everyone, Nobody and My Contacts. The new option of 'My Contacts Except' will soon be added by WhatsApp. The Android users will get an update about this very soon. The users can start excluding the contacts from the list after the feature will be made available. WhatsApp will make an official announcement about the same very soon.
