WhatsApp, the Meta-owned social messaging platform, is introducing a new feature to resolve the issue of annoying link preview bug.

According to WABetaInfo, several beta testers reported that the image preview does not appear while sharing certain links.

Specifically, it appears that this issue is limited to links that generate a large thumbnail, causing them to fail to display properly within the chat interface.

Restarting the device or killing the app didn’t resolve the issue, so a new bug-fix update was needed to get a final solution.

Now, users can install the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 2.24.6.10 update from Google Play Store. It is a bug-fix update that finally addresses the issue.

This means that users can finally share links without experiencing this issue.
