Android version WhatsApp gets link previews and Star feature

Following the iOS app, WhatsApp for Android is getting an update with link previews and bookmarking. Now you can mark messages with a star to find them later easily.

Android version WhatsApp updated

WhatsApp update for Android (version 2.12.367) ensures that you now get a detailed preview if you send or receive a website link. Now you can see at a glance where the link leads to. It is also possible to switch off the preview image when sending a link.

Another nice improvement that this update brings is that you can mark messages with a star. On a message, press and hold, you can add it as a favorite and, in the same way, you can undo it. Starred messages can be found in chronological order through to the tab “Chats” by pressing Menu > Messages with Stars button.

Whatsapp link preview

Whatsapp users with Android 6.0 Marshmallow can use Instant Share to quickly share photos or videos from the gallery with a specific WhatsApp contact after the update. This saves a step because you do not have to open WhatsApp and then have to press the contact. Direct Share shows some users that you’ve had the last contact with.
