Thousands of users on social networks waited for years for WhatsApp to allow sharing music, videos And till links in a more pleasant way in the states that launched the platform 5 years ago. Now everything indicates that Goal finally stopped ignoring and is already preparing an update that will affect the way the links in these posts.
The last few years of WhatsApp have been, by far, the ones that have brought the most updates and new features to the Meta application. Many are strongly changing the appearance of the application, such as the last one that will show the state in the contact list. Now, according to a well-known discovery portal, the next big change will focus on these too, and on the simplistic way they had until now to display the links.
While many popular apps offer the ability to share statuses and stories, most apps like Instagram, TikTok Y Facebookthey have a mechanism that recognizes these contents and gives them an appropriate preview or, at least, the possibility of choosing a design so that it does not appear too cluttered.
For example, on Instagram, we have the possibility to place a link with some fonts and colors; On WhatsApp, on the other hand, if we place a link, it will be displayed as a generic text, which is not very pleasing to the eye.

The new design of links in WhatsApp
Now, according to a recent discovery made by the well-known portal WABetaInfoeverything indicates that WhatsApp has already prepared a change for the links that are shared in the states, after 5 years since this functionality was released.
In these last 5 years, the states have not evolved or received any changes. Until now, when we share a link in this function, we will be shown part of the Url address as a link and, only sometimes, a small display at the bottom (almost identical to those that appear in conversations).

At the moment, it is not known when this change will be applied, but given the recent history with the mentioned portal, it is possible that this change is already in its final stage before being introduced in the new Meta app updates.
