WhatsApp to Introduce a Hide Muted Status Updates Feature
This feature is not functional yet as WhatsApp is working on developing this feature, but soon it will be enabled for testing. So if you are a part of the Google Play Beta program for WhatsApp and have installed the latest 2.19.183 update on your Android phone, you still will not be able to see the feature.
A new Hide button will be available right next to the Muted Updates section. Once the users press the Hide button, all the muted status updates will disappear. However, by pressing the ‘Show’ button, users can bring them back and that will replace the ‘Hide’ button in order to bring the Muted Updates back.
It is not confirmed that when this feature will be available for users as there is no word yet that when the company is planning to roll out it for everyone.
