For WhatsApp, Meta has recently added a number of features that were not previously available to challenge other messaging platforms.
The WABetaInfo website reports that it is working to add a feature for WhatsApp that shows link previews when sharing WhatsApp status.
In this screenshot you can see the difference between the UI of the existing text status update and the UI of the new text status update which will be released soon. When sharing a link in Text Status Update, you can see a good preview by adding more details.
There is already a preview when sharing a link for text status updates on WhatsApp, but it’s a good preview and you have to touch the link to see it. Due to this a better link preview will be released soon. This feature is still under development and is expected to be available for Android and iOS WhatsApp beta testers in a future update.
