The company has termed this feature as rich preview and is still working on the nitty-gritty to ensure flawless experience. As of now, customers with version 2.12.312 are able to preview links before hitting the send button. However, the recipients will have to wait a bit longer for this preview feature. So far, the rich preview only works with regular URLs. The preview links only showcase a small brief of the page.  Unlike Telegram where user can check out even images and its caption, on Whatsapp preview consists only text.

Despite sitting at the top of the ladder, company is continuously trying to roll out new features for its users. Users can expect more such interesting features from Whatsapp in the coming months.
