WHAT IS A URL PREVIEW?
When you post a link, image or GIF in a Palringo chat screen, you will now see a preview for the page. This will be a section, within your message, showing basic page information (depending on the nature of the URL), and perhaps a thumbnail picture.
WHAT CAN I POST?
Most links should make use of URL preview, including regular websites, or links to pictures, videos, social media and GIFs.
By sending a URL link of an image into a Group Chat or PM it will present the image under the link like shown below. You can tap the image to enlarge or tap the link to visit the website:
Everyone loves these little animated pictures, so paste a .gif link into the chat and see it come to life.! Our screenshot here doesn’t show the animation, but believe us it’s there! Tap a GIF in the chat window to enlarge it, or tap the link to visit the website. Please remember to use one of our recommended websites** to see the preview.
- Website links
Pasting a web link into the group will show a preview of the website address, description and if it’s an official Palringo link, you’ll see the trusty Palringo logo. Please note that shortened links will function just the same as a full URL would! And, again, you can tap the link to visit the website:
HOW DO THE LINKS WORK?
There are three types of links: trusted, untrusted and unknown. The URL preview behaviour will vary accordingly:
- For whitelisted websites Palringo will always show a URL preview.
- For blacklisted websites you will see a warning that this link may be harmful.
- For unknown (not checked) web pages the URL preview will not be shown in chat.
- You can always turn URL Preview on/off in your settings
- Previews even work for [your group] links!
