Previous news? WhatsApp beta for Android what’s new?

WhatsApp is rolling out one of the best privacy features today, giving you more control over who can see your information on WhatsApp.
What’s that? In the past months, we have announced that WhatsApp was working to introduce a “My Contacts Except…” option for Last Seen (, Profile Photo ( and About ( The feature was under development in those updates, but WhatsApp is finally rolling out this option for specific beta testers today!
In order to verify if the feature is already available for your WhatsApp account, so if you’re lucky, you need to open your Privacy Settings to see if the option is visible:

When you select “My contacts except…” you can finally choose who cannot see your information on WhatsApp. Note that, if the feature is not enabled for people who you select in the “My contacts except” section, they still cannot see your information.
If you disable your last seen for specific contacts, you won’t be able to see their last seen as well: this special rule for Last Seen does not apply to About and Profile Photo.
If the feature is not available for your WhatsApp account, don’t worry: WhatsApp is gradually enabling the feature for specific beta testers, and more activations will be following after installing the next updates.
