How to hide someone's status on Whatsapp

WhatsApp statuses, like Instagram stories or Facebook statuses, can become a real break from p….! And, in most cases, the states of many of our contacts don't interest us, so in the end we end up seeing a lot of Stories that don't interest us in the slightest. 



For some time now, WhatsApp has been offering the option to silence the statuses of contacts that we don't want to see, but, although they appear obscured, their publications continue to be shown in the States tab. What the new beta of WhatsApp allows you to do, is to hide someone's status on Whatsapp and make it disappear from the card. 

To use the new WhatsApp feature, you must first silence a contact's status. To do this, click on the three-dot icon in the top right corner of the status and tap on the Disable option. Once that's done, you'll see that contact's updates will appear at the bottom of the window, under the Muted heading.


At the moment, this feature is only available in the beta version and we don't know when it will be released for the stable version, although it most likely won't take long. If you would like to try the experimental functions of the application, we tell you below how to install whatsapp beta on android.
