WhatsApp has rolled out an update – the new WhatsApp version 2.11.186 now comes with the last seen privacy settings, pay for friends WhatsApp service, Hindi language support (on Android 4.1+ OS) and other new features.

Facebook had recently acquired WhatsApp and we already knew about the last seen option that WhatsApp would be implementing and now implemented. Going a step further WhatsApp will soon implement voice calls too – but there is still time for that.

For now the WhatsApp 2.11.186 is being rolled out and you might have already seen the update notification or have already updated to the latest version. The key highlight about the new update is the privacy setting that was needed. You can now set the privacy level for profile photo, status and last seen. (Settings -> Account -> Privacy).
