This article explains how to turn Text and Media previews inside message notifications On or Off in WhatsApp on Windows 11.
WhatsApp is a popular cross-platform messaging app that allows users to send text and voice messages, make voice and video calls, share files, and more.
One can configure many settings with the WhatsApp app in Windows, including starting the WhatsApp app at login, turning read receipts on or off, turning notifications on or off, turning automatic downloads on or off, clearing and deleting chats, and more.
The WhatsApp app has a setting that allows users to turn text and media previews inside new message notifications on or off.
Turning text and media previews on or off in WhatsApp allows you to control whether or not the content of incoming messages and media are displayed in the notification banner. If the text preview is turned on, you can read the first few words of the message in the notification banner itself.
However, if the text preview is turned off, you’ll only see the name of the sender and a notification that a new message has arrived. This can help you maintain your privacy by keeping the content of your messages hidden from prying eyes.
Additionally, it can be useful if you’re in a public place and don’t want others to see your messages.
