WhatsApp is a popular instant messaging app owned by Facebook. It has rolled out many changes in the past to make the whole messaging experience smooth and user-friendly.

With this upcoming update, users will be able to hide or mute the status updates from the selected contacts. This feature has recently been spotted in the beta version. The status can be hidden through this new hide button feature of Whatsapp.
Hide/Mute Friends Whatsapp Status
Currently if you have blocked or muted a person in your contact list then their status still appears at the bottom of the status list. However, now with this update one can easily hide the unwanted status from the person without blocking them. To make it easier for the user the setting has been placed in a separate tab. WhatsApp status can currently be seen by all the people in the contact list of the user. To change the privacy of the status, the user has to make changes in the privacy settings, after which you can remove some people in your contact from there. But after the new hide option feature, you can hide the status of those people whom you do not want to see on your status tab. WABetainfo has spotted this hide feature.
