Link Previews on Status
Link Preview is a new update in Whatsapp. It allows users to share a clickable link in their status, along with a preview of the content behind the link.
When a user shares a link in their status, WhatsApp automatically generates a preview of the page, which includes a title, description, and image.
WhatsApp already has the View Once feature. It is useful when you want to share a private photo with close ones. But, one can take a screenshot of that photo, which nullifies the privacy behind it. Now, you can’t take a screenshot of it. If you take a screenshot of the View Once photo, you will get the Screenshot Blocked screen.
