What are link previews?

Link previews automatically expand a link in a message into a beautiful display including the image, title and description.

Link previews work in two ways:

  • Adding a link in the Feed element
  • Pasting a link in a new line of a text element and hit the return  or  enter key.

It's no longer necessary to manually upload images, titles or descriptions into emails.
