Good news for those who like to use social networks and messaging apps without being disturbed. WhatsApp will allow users to disable their online status, without necessarily having to block a contact.

It is not difficult to find people who are interested in the feature that makes it possible to go offline for some people, without having to block them. The user is not always in the mood to start a conversation and just wants to browse the application without being noticed.

Currently, anyone can see who is online and when the contact was “ON” on WhatsApp, being able to indicate whether certain content has been forwarded and read. There is no denying that, in cases of emergency or help, knowing if the contact is available (online) is of utmost importance.
