Disable snippet preview
While it's a great new feature, making it a disable-able feature would be great! It sort of takes the fun out of opening a funny link your friends send you when the preview is already there.
In Textra 3.41 rolling out this week we have added a new preference, see Settings > Web Previews (Off, Sent, Received, All). So configure whatever suits!
Please switch off this feature. It's usually full of mash anyway as the server doesn't support the function.
It's pretty #$%& absurd that you can't disable this!
This needs to be disabled by default urgently as I am finding highly inappropriate links being inserted in to sms messages when people sign off their sms's with xxx as this is a valid domain and leads to all kinds of offensive content!! For example my elderly mother often signs off sms messages with mum.xxx which textra thinks is a link to a pron site!!!! Very very bad and what if I was a minor?
Yes, PLEASE allow this to be disabled! I find it very, very annoying. Not because of funny links, but because I don't want this crap showing up. Plus, it ends up making a call to the link which I may not even want to open up!
Also, it can eat up data on links you might choose not to click on until you're on wifi.
