In the article about the WhatsApp beta for iOS update, we announced that a tweaked interface when loading link previews was available for certain beta testers. When using this feature, users can experiment with a better experience when sharing links thanks to a new loading indicator. Yesterday, the company released the WhatsApp for iOS 23.9.77 update on the App Store: as you can see in the official changelog, the feature regarding link previews is now rolling out to everyone!

The official changelog mentions news regarding polls where users can choose to limit them to only one option, announced in our article about the WhatsApp beta for iOS 23.8.78 update, but it also mentions that link previews received reliability improvements thanks to the tweaked interface that includes a new loading indicator. Previously, users had no indication of the preview’s loading status, resulting in unnecessary waiting time. Thanks to the updated link preview interface, users know when a preview is loading and when it is available.

If you don’t have this feature, note that some accounts may receive it over the coming weeks, as noted in the official changelog. Please stay ahead by regularly updating WhatsApp from the App Store and the TestFlight app to get the feature in the future in case you don’t have it after installing this update.

The tweaked interface when loading link previews, along with all other improvements from the recent beta versions of the app, is finally available for iOS users that install the latest update of WhatsApp from the App Store. Make sure to install this update to enjoy a better user experience.
