New updates on WhatsApp!

WhatsApp has announced new privacy updates this Tuesday.

The platform will soon let people control who can see when they're online, prevent others from taking screenshots of certain messages, and leave groups without anyone knowing.

WhatsApp has more than 2 billion users globally and is owned by the Meta company. Announcing the changes to Facebook and Instagram, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company will continue to build new ways to protect messages, keep them as private and secure as face-to-face conversations.

Two of the new features — which will let you choose who can see when you're active and leave groups silently — will start rolling out to all WhatsApp users this month.

The screenshot blocking tool, which will be available in messages that are intended to be viewed only once, is still being tested and will be available later, according to WhatsApp.
