WhatsApp is releasing fixed link previews for WhatsApp desktop beta clients. WhatsApp has previously announced a new multi-device update to bring some improvements and bug fixes on WhatsApp beta for Android, iOS, and web clients. After this announcement, the platform is now bringing a new update. WhatsApp always comes up with new updates to keep the app enhanced.
A few days back it announced a new feature that enables users to see previews of links so that they know what you have shared and what you are going to see or read. According to the report of WABetaInfo, the platform is again bringing the ability to generate rich link previews for WhatsApp desktop beta while using multi-device. Get the details in this article.
Fixed link previews for WhatsApp desktop beta
As widely known the popular Meta-owned messaging platform continuously keeps working to bring new development to its app. Lately, it has been working on Multi-device improvements since the update was rolled out a few days back. It is reported that at present some features like the ability to generate rich link previews are not supported on WhatsApp web.
Though WhatsApp desktop has always supported link previews, according to the reports recently they stopped working for some technical issues. Now the report reveals that the platform has finally addressed the issue with a fix last week, and WhatsApp desktop is again able to generate link previews.
The report further mentions that generating link previews on WhatsApp web is still not possible because it is one of the unsupported features following the migration to multi-device. The ability to create a broadcast list or view live locations on linked devices is also on the list.
It is expected that after WhatsApp introduces the supported fixed link previews for more features on WhatsApp web/desktop the confusion will be solved. However, as soon as there is any update on this event you will be informed. WABetaInfo gives credit to Hypogriff and mateusmarquezini for testing and reporting.
