WhatsApp For Android Gets Starred Messages, Rich Link Previews

By 07:52 Thu, 29 Jul 2021 Comments

WhatsApp for Android has been updated with a few handy recent features, couple of which had been introduced on iOS a few weeks back.

The first is the ability to star messages. You can now press and hrecent on a message and acquire the option to star it. This works like bookmarking, where you can star messages to go back to them later in a separate folder.

The other recent feature is rich link previews. No longer will you see just the URL or a small thumbnail when you or someone else shares a link. The app will generate a small preview with the article title and a larger thumbnail. You can choose not to show the preview while sharing links.

The last recent feature is exclusive to Android, or more specifically to Marshmallow, where you can now acquire access to Android DirectShare, allowing you to share directly to specific contacts or groups on WhatsApp within the share sheet itself.

The update is now live on the Play Store.
