The update for the app comes without any changelog but with a new Hidden feature which will be enabled along with the “Status” Feature. The team has pushed out a new feature for the “Status Tab”. Below is the changelog with Screenshot.


  • Opening Privacy Settings from the “Status” tab (Hidden), WA will directly open Status Privacy Settings (before it opened all settings).(Screenshot Below)

The WhatsApp team is working very hard in improving the application for Windows Phone. The Privacy Settings feature is currently Hidden and should be available to all users once the “Status” feature is rolled out for Indian Users.
