Last Seen, Status Photo and About Status Disabling Features:

What it means is that either anyone, or all your contacts can see your updates, or no one can.
But WhatsApp says it is updating the privacy settings to include My Contacts Except.
The latest updates will allow users hide their Last Seen, Profile Photo or About status from specific people.
It will let users hide their last active status, profile picture, or current About status to friends or colleagues or strangers while still showing them to those they want.
Although the My Contacts Except is currently only available on WhatsApp for iOS, Android version is on its way too.
Note that users will not be able to see their last active status if they disable their Last Seen status from their particular contacts.
This is similar to how you are not able to see the last active status of others if you have disabled their access to your status.
“Back in 2017, WhatsApp introduced the My Contacts Except… privacy setting for its Status function. That was designed to let users disable specific contacts from viewing their status messages. WhatsApp also updated its group privacy settings in November 2019 by adding the My Contacts Except… option to let users have additional control for who among their contacts can add them to a group,” says Gadgets.ndtv.
