Update to WhatsApp for Android adds rich preview feature and starred messages
With the update, links that you send or receive on WhatsApp will offer a rich preview. That means the links will include both a headline and a thumbnail image. Users will have the option of disabling the rich preview feature if they choose to do so. And for those using a Android device running Marshmallow, Android direct share allows you to quickly select a chat when sharing content from other apps.
WhatsApp is free for the first year, and is 99 cents a year thereafter. If you already have WhatsApp, you can manually update it by going to the Google Play Store, and clicking on the hamburger menu in the top left of the screen. Click on My apps and games, and then on WhatsApp. If you've yet to install the app on your Android phone, go to the Google Play Store and install it now. The free download will include the new update.
