One familiar instant messaging service that continues to top the list amongst similar messaging services is WhatsApp. Although the platform is not feature-packed like its competition Telegram, it continues to be everyone’s favourite. With a few new improvements and features, it gathers gradually, its keep getting better. After a long while, the Meta-owned social platform is now set to roll out a new update that will greatly improve document previews.
According to WABetainfo, prior to the now, when documents are shared in PDF, JPEG, or DOC, WhatsApp is known to only show a generic preview displaying the file type and the file name. What this means is that a user would have to actually download the document first to verify its content. With the latest WhatsApp beta update, documents will now display a rich preview that gives you an idea of the content. For now, reports say, the quality of the previews is quite poor. This can be indicative of the beta nature of the feature, and we hope with time the quality will be optimized to versions.
One can only hope that Meta fixes all issues associated with media sharing, especially the quality of media images that drop drastically as soon as you sent them on the platform. Better still, the company needs to improve the regular image sharing system, adding a proper option that helps users maintain the actual quality of a media file sent and received. Until this is corrected, GB WhatsApp Download will continue to play second fiddle to big-time rival Telegram in the media department.
.Users that have used the instant messaging service long enough, can likely remember when sharing a link was a pain — very short previews, no thumbnails, etc. and may likely be more appreciative of these new features. However more features are rumoured to be on the way, an example is the iMessage type of message reactions, the ability to finally transfer chats from the Android platform to the iOS platform, a feature that will automatically provide a transcribed version of your voice messages. The new feature is said to have started rolling out with the latest WhatsApp beta and will be out to everyone in the coming weeks.
