WhatsApp Beta adds preview feature for text shared from third-party apps

“You can now preview your text and confirm and cancel the operation when sharing from a third-party app to multiple two or more contacts”

WhatsApp has been updated with a new multi-share feature, which offers a preview of the text being shared with multiple contacts from third-party apps. The new feature is available for beta version 2.18.366 and is soon expected to make its way to the stable version.


The feature was first reported by the Twitter user WABetaInfo. The new feature will allow the users to preview text, links, GIFs, and other media files before it is forwarded to two or more contacts from a third-party app. As the user selects the contact and hits the send button, it will appear on the screen. Notably, the user would find a link preview if sharing a URL directly from Twitter or YouTube. The key purpose of previewing the content that user will be sharing is to make people sure about the text or files they are forwarding.
