Updated link preview interface to include a loading indicator.
With the latest update, iOS users can now enjoy better user experience while sharing links on the platform.
Meta-owned instant messaging application WhatsApp has reportedly rolled out a new update for iOS that includes a tweaked interface when loading link previews. The feature was earlier available to some beta testers, but is now being rolled out to all users.
“The updated link preview interface includes a loading indicator that gives users a clear indication of when the preview is loading and when it’s available,” reported WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp.
The latest WhatsApp update, version 23.9.77, also includes improvements to the reliability of link previews. Previously, users had no indication of the loading status of the preview, resulting in unnecessary waiting time. With the updated interface, users will know exactly when the preview is ready to watch.
Apart from link preview tweaks, the update also includes news related to elections. Users can now choose to limit the choice to just one option, a feature that was announced in the previous beta version.
WhatsApp users who do not yet have the updated link preview interface should update the app regularly from the App Store or TestFlight app to get it in the future. According to the official changelog, some accounts may get this feature in the coming weeks.
The updated interface is part of a series of improvements that WhatsApp has been introducing in recent beta versions. With the latest update, iOS users can now enjoy better user experience while sharing links on the platform.
In related news, WhatsApp announced that it is now compatible with Wear OS. With this new feature, users can now use WhatsApp on their smartwatches. Wear OS is an Android operating system designed for smartwatches, and the latest WhatsApp beta update for Android is finally compatible with it.
Thanks to the smartwatch app, users can now stay connected and access their chats and messages directly from their smartwatch. As of now, the app includes features like chat messaging and voice messages.
