New Delhi. WhatsApp is working on a feature called phone number sharing option. This feature will allow users to hide their phone number in sub-groups. Actually, WhatsApp is such a messaging application, where you can either chat with a person individually or talk in a group. You can also add people to it by creating a group.
In such a situation, if someone is adding you to a group with someone else, then people who you do not know may also be included in that group. In such a situation, you can see the number of other people in the group and those people are yours, but with the help of this feature you will be able to hide your number.
This feature can be started with future updates.
