Mattermost, Inc.

Preview URLs inline?

Is there some setting in Mattermost 1.0 to preview URLs, similar to what Slack does today? For example, if I paste http://www.example.com, it’d be great to show a bit of the headline from that page. Thanks.

We currently don’t offer the option to show previews for URLs, but I think that makes a lot of sense. I opened a feature suggestion here where the community can go and upvote and comment on this feature.

It is possible to manually add inline images with Markdown, but I can see how having auto-generated text previews for URLs would be useful.
