The preview applies, for now, only to links that refer to images and videos shared in this messaging application. In other words, at the moment we will not have the same benefit for documents and other files shared on the same platform.

News to share images and videos through WhatsApp

In view of the above, we see that this is one of the most significant updates for any user who usually sends images and videos through the messaging application. The platform is well known for compressing and reducing the quality of uploaded files.

On the other hand, the platform also introduced, not too recently, an option that should safeguard the quality of the images sent. However, the results are not satisfactory, with little difference between the compressed (normal) image and the one that should be of maximum quality.

Therefore, currently the only way to maintain the quality of an image is to send it as a document. Thus, the impact that this novelty will have on the normal use of the Meta group messaging app is quickly understood.

In short, despite not being the long-awaited standardization for sharing images, videos and files, it is already an important first step in this direction. It now remains to wait for the arrival of this version in the Google Play Store and App Store.
