It is worth mentioning that the new feature isn’t being forced on users as the rich previews can easily be removed prior publishing or sending a message. In fact these previews pull data from the corresponding web address and provide a little preview of the article within the app.

The early update made it possible to send video files as animated gifs on Windows phones. If you have the latest version of WhatsApp, you may have noticed it when sending a video in a conversation.

WhatsApp Popular Features

WhatsApp is a popular chat and phone call service available for Android, iOS and Windows operated smartphones. Here are some of its most popular features:

  • NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone’s Internet connection to let you send message and make voice call to your friends and family, so you don’t have to pay for every message or call. There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp.
  • MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.
  • FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes.
  • NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There’s no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.
  • SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone’s existing address book.
