A better overview of links in WhatsApp stories
WABetaInfo therefore tells us that the messaging application, property of Meta, ” currently working on some improvements for status updates “. The outlet reveals that the company is developing “ the ability to generate rich link previews when sharing a link to your status update “.
On the next previews of links, we would therefore have more information: the name of the page, a presentation image, but also a description. The screenshot shared by the media is from the beta version of iOS, where currently no link preview is generated. Contrary to what we have on Android where there is already a preview, but which is not rich. This new feature should also come to Android betas and desktop apps later.
According to WABetaInfo“this feature is under development and will be offered to beta testers in a future update“.
WhatsApp, to remain attractive, updates regularly, with the recent arrival of reactions and the sending of larger files. Other new features are to come, such as the multi-device mode which is under development.
