Moreover, the company is developing a feature that will allow users to share status updates with only a specific group of people. In other words, it seems that Meta will soon bring Instagram’s Close Friends feature to WhatsApp. On Instagram, you can set some of the people you follow as “close friends”, and you can share stories and updates that only people within this select group will be able to see.

There is no word on when WhatsApp will bring these features to users. It is worth noting that the company also has some other features in development for its users. We expect to hear more about this and other updates in the near future.
