    There is no forecast for the release of functionality discovered today, but it shouldn’t be long before it becomes available to WhatsApp testers. It is noteworthy that the status (temporary posts of the messenger) already have the function since 2017, so it was to be expected that the configuration was extended for more options at some point.

    As this is a resource still under construction, the general public still has to wait. It’s a shame, however, that WhatsApp has not yet implemented the long-awaited option of disappearing with the “online” indicator to avoid even more inconveniences.
