WhatsApp Link Previews are getting bigger: Here's Why HalfofThe

WhatsApp link previews might be getting better soon if the latest reports are to be believed. The popular messaging app is reportedly working on implementing bigger link previews so that you don’t click on anything by mistake while chatting up your friends and family. The messaging service only has one line of text to preview links, which would be expanded if the change goes through.

This may seem like a trivial change, but it should prove to be quite helpful nonetheless. WhatsApp currently squishes text and images into four or five lines with an unhelpful thumbnail (if any). Comparatively, Telegram displays more text and larger images, giving you a better idea of what’s happening before clicking the links.

Why do we need bigger WhatsApp Link Preview?

We’re not sure what’s up with WhatsApp until now, but it seems like they’re getting an increasing amount of spam links these days. Users see a message from someone and the preview for the link shows them some other website that’s been linked to by that account before or something else entirely unrelated, which is just annoying because you can’t tell what’s going on until you click on it.

To resolve the issue, WhatsApp is testing the larger link previews, which will help users know before they click the link. WhatsApp is also taking down multiple apps that violate its rules on collecting user information. GB WhatsApp application users’ accounts are banned recently.

If you are wondering, What is WhatsApp?

WhatsApp is a free messaging app that allows you to text with friends, family, and other contacts. It also includes features such as the ability to make voice calls, broadcast messages by sending an audio or video file to multiple contacts at once, save received media files locally on your device for later viewing (or share them), and much more. The service has over a billion users globally, and it’s available in more than 180 countries around the world.
