Meta is constantly adding new features to improve its messaging platform WhatsApp. The company is now making changes to the rich link preview that appears in the status update for users.
This new feature is being rolled out in the Android beta version of the app. WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo said that this feature is present in Android beta 188.8.131.52, but some users were given this feature in the old version as well. Let us know about it in detail.
Rich link preview in status update changing in WhatsApp
When you paste a link in WhatsApp’s status update, other users can tap on it to see its rich link preview at the bottom. This preview gives information about the destination of the link to the user. Now WhatsApp is highlighting this preview more than ever.
WABetaInfo reported that a new rich link preview system has been added to WhatsApp Android 184.108.40.206. The publication has also shared a screenshot of this feature. Here the rich link preview is visible in a bigger size than before and its position has shifted from the bottom to the center of the screen. It is visible above the preview link.
If you have the 220.127.116.11 beta version of WhatsApp, then this new feature should be activated for you. If it doesn’t exist you will have to wait a bit. According to the publication, the roll out of this new feature is very slow, but some users were also given it with the previous beta version of the app.
WhatsApp is currently working on a new feature for Disappearing Messages. According to WABetaInfo, the option of Kept Messages will be given for messages that are now missing in this messaging app. Through this, people can mark the messages to be saved in Disappearing Messages. Kept messages can be seen separately in the chat. As far as the group is concerned, here only the admin will be able to save or unsave any message in Kept Messages.
