WhatsApp rich previews for URLs and extra ‘clear chat’ options
The newer version allows previews of web URLS. However, they are limited to snippet texts and small images that are visible to the sender only. The URLS do not work with image links, and therefore, there is more for WhatsApp to clean out. We expect to see the updates soon. The clear chat utility in the chat window has expanded a set of options. You can select which chat to clear rather than cleaning the entire chat.
