WhatsApp Desktop privacy settings

WhatsApp is making it possible for desktop users to manage their privacy settings within the system itself. The developers seem to be more concerned about the privacy setting for the users.

The noted point is, users aren’t able to change their privacy settings in the Desktop systems. They have to use smartphones to customize the settings, which is quite hectic to use often.

However, WhatsApp is also customizing the privacy options for smartphone users on iOS and Androids. Related to this, a new “My Contact Except” function is being developed that’ll release soon.

As for the WhatsApp Web/Desktop users, we are seeing back-to-back editions after the multi-device feature. Now, this privacy setting feature will bring more conveniences for the users in the WhatsApp Desktop.

However, it is in the development phase and will roll out with the future update. Thereby, it might be possible to have more features in the final release.

Previous WhatsApp Update:

In the previous edition, WhatsApp has rolled out the Message rating function with the Android 2.21.22.7 beta update. It allows users to rate a particular message received from business accounts.

Furthermore, WhatsApp cannot see its content and who rated that message. The feedback is saved as purely anonymous with end-to-end encrypted messages. Overall, all ratings help businesses improve their messages to customers.
