General News WhatsApp for Android to soon start showing previews of shared links
#1
Advertisement

WhatsApp is preparing an update for its Android app that brings in an interesting feature. This feature essentially lets you a preview of the links that are shared in messages.


WhatsApp for Android version 2.12.312 is not being released, but instead is available on the company’s beta uploads page, and APK Mirror. The folks at Android Policewere first to spot this feature, and have also shared some screenshots.

When you start typing an URL, you will be able to see a small preview of the content in that particular link. At the moment though, the feature doesn’t seem to be fully ready and the previews are only visible at the sender’s end. In other words, if someone sends you a link you will only see the link and no preview. This issue however is likely to be ironed out by the time WhatsApp rolls out the update. We tried the beta version of the app, but the feature doesn’t seem to be working, which could mean the company is testing it with a limited number of users.

The Facebook-owned messaging app now boasts over 900 million monthly active users. The last new feature introduced by the company lets users backup their chats on Google Drive. As for iOS users, it recently introduced WhatsApp Web, and is alsobringing a new bookmarking feature on the latest app update.
