Per a report by WABetainfo, Android beta update 2.19.183, brings with it a new feature called Hide Muted Status. The feature will give you an option to hide the status updates from specific people from the contact list. When you go to the muted status update section, you will see the option on the top with "Hide" button. Once you have enabled the feature you can click the "Hide" option again to restore the previous settings and then it will "show" the status with the rest of the statuses.

WhatsApp says it is constantly stepping up its capabilities to keep the platform safe.

There is no timeline on when the feature will rollout to end user, but it is expected to reach the public version of the app soon. Another feature that this messaging app is getting is that users will now be able to see how many times has a particular messge been forwarded. WhatsApp is apparently also working on an app-wide dark mode option and sharing of WhatsApp status to Facebook stories.
