WhatsApp is leaving no stone unturned to keep its users hooked to its platform. Now, roll up your sleeves as WhatsApp is adding new features to its service. The facebook-owned instant messaging platform is bringing more flexibility in its visibility features.

Now, WhatsApp is giving an option to the users to display elements like their last seen to all contacts except specific contacts allowing more fine controls. This feature is similar to WhatsApp’s story feature where you can choose your contacts as per your choice.

The feature has been under the developing stage for a few months, and it is now live for a subset of people in the beta version. Currently, the popular instant messaging app allows you to hide features like your last seen and About information from everyone or simply show it to your contacts.

According to WABetaInfo, the feature will be available in WhatsApp beta v2.21.23.14 for Android users before being rolled out to the app’s current version. Those using the beta version may access the new visibility page by going to Privacy Settings and choosing the new ‘My Contacts Except…’ option.

Once enabled, the selected contacts will be unable to access your WhatsApp Status, Last Seen, and About information, depending on your preferences. Users should keep in mind, however, that disabling the last seen option for a specific contact will also prevent you from seeing their last seen information.

The addition is the latest in a series of features aimed at attracting new users and maintaining existing ones in the midst of the rising popularity of rival applications like Telegram and Signal. WhatsApp is also experimenting with a new Community feature that will allow group admins to build sub-groups within groups.   On the web version, other new features include picture editing and sticker suggestions.

A renowned tipster, Evan Blass, has provided enthusiasts with an early look at the design and colour choices of the Samsung Galaxy M35, ahead of its highly anticipated debut in the Indian market. The smartphone is set to arrive in three distinct colour variations – grey, light blue, and dark blue, which show striking similarities with the Galaxy A35, suggesting a possible rebranding strategy by Samsung.

The leaked image showcases the Galaxy M35 with a vertically aligned triple rear camera setup, positioned at the top left corner alongside an LED flash integrated into what appears to be a plastic back. The Galaxy M35 introduces a sleeker and more modern look with a hole punch selfie camera cutout, departing from the water drop style notch seen on its predecessor.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy M35 is expected to boast a substantial 6000mAh battery capacity, surpassing its counterpart, the Galaxy A35, which contains 5000mAh. This enhancement in battery power indicates Samsung’s commitment to delivering extended usage durations for its consumers. 

Moreover, specific specifications are yet to be confirmed by Samsung, but reports suggest that the Galaxy M35 could feature a 6.6-inch display and run on an Exynos 1380 chipset paired with 6 GB of RAM, ensuring seamless performance for users across various tasks and applications. 

Despite bearing a resemblance to the Galaxy A35, the leaked image also highlights subtle differences between the two models, notably in the design of the volume and power buttons, as well as the location of the SIM tray. Such nuances indicate the potential distinction in user experience and functionality between the two devices.

As excitement grows for the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy M35, fans and tech enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for more information from the company about the phone’s specifications, price, and when it will be available. Stay tuned for more updates in the days or weeks leading up to the official unveiling of the Galaxy M35.
