WhatsApp had also recently added a new feature via an update for the desktop, allowing users to exercise more privacy.

The quick messaging app is rolling out a new update for the desktop client through the official beta channel, bringing the version to 2.2149.1.

WhatsApp has been working for relatively some time on the "My Contact Except…" feature, which will add more control over the users' privacy. For the said update, the users will have a command to show/hide the last seen, about, profile photo to anyone.

"These features will be likely released on WhatsApp Web and Desktop when WhatsApp has completely rolling out the same feature on Android beta and iOS beta version. Sadly, there isn't a release date known for the feature to be enabled for more users on Android and iOS," 

WhatsApp is also listing a new update that will allow you to preview your voice messages before sending them.
