WABetaInfo has another peek at what looks like a future version of WhatsApp that will offer extended privacy capabilities.

For example, WhatsApp iOS users can hide their recent activity status, online status, and even offline status from other users.

You can hide your "Last Seen status" in the messaging app from people outside your contact list.

The same logic applies to your online status via a separate option called "Same As Last Seen".

Developers are also working on an editor button for messages and a way to react to messages in the chat.

Notice that even though the screenshot was taken during the development of WhatsApp beta iOS, WhatsApp plans to add the same feature in future updates of WhatsApp beta Android and Desktop beta.

This feature is currently in development, and we don't know when it will be available to the public.
