WhatsApp For Desktops Will Gain Mobile Privacy Options

whatsapp: This Friday (29) the WabetaInfo portal revealed a screenshot showing the privacy settings of whatsapp in the desktop version of the messenger. Currently, the options are exclusive to Android and iOS apps; the update is not yet available, but will be released in a beta version of the desktop program in the future.

As you can see below, the user can restrict whether other customers can see the “last seen” time, profile picture, messages and read receipts. In addition, you can choose who can invite the profile to groups and manage the blocked list.

That said, the release date is still uncertain, but the interface looks ready-made and already contains almost all elements of the mobile variant, without the adjustments for status updates, localization and fingerprint blocking. So it shouldn’t be long before the novelty shows up in the tests.

it is remarkable that whatsapp Desktop won a public beta model in August. With the development of multi-device support without the smartphone necessarily being connected to the internet and this “disclosure”, it seems that the company is trying to make the devices more independent.
