WhatsApp to launch new feature for users across the World
WhatsApp link is working on implementing bigger link link previews link. The news comes out courtesy of the folks at WABetaInfo who love to dig into the app and figure out what the devs have in store for fans before the features are made public.
This may seem like a trivial change, but it should be a helpful one nonetheless. WhatsApp link currently squishes previews into four or five lines with a tiny thumbnail (if any). Comparatively, Telegram displays way more text and larger images, giving you a better idea of what you're about to get into before you open the link.
When the change that WABetaInfo discovered lands, WhatsApp link previews should look a bit more like Telegram's with a large thumbnail and, hopefully, more room for text.
*Video and photo quality *
WhatsApp link might be facing stiffer competition than ever from the likes of Telegram and Signal, but it remains one of the most popular ways to communicate with your friends and family. A recent beta version hinted at some upcoming improvements to video compression, and it looks like images are getting the same treatment.
WABetaInfo found another feature under development in WhatsApp link beta for Android 184.108.40.206. Another iteration was recently submitted to Google Play, pushing ahead with adding new customization options for sending all sorts of media. The previous version revealed new settings in the works to adjust the quality of video files, and this update extends the same preferences for photos.
