Discord shows a preview of YouTube links shared on chats or channels. Not just YouTube, the preview feature works for every link. Be it a web page link, a video link, or a product link, you see a preview for all. While the link preview feature on Discord can be helpful for many users as one can see what the link is all about without clicking on it, the same thing can be frustrating for users who deal with a lot of link exchanges in chats or channels.
Disabling the link preview feature on Discord also saves your internet data as it requires some amount of data to fetch the link to generate a preview. So, if you receive a bunch of links, then you might run out of internet data anytime with the link feature turned on. The preview for all links makes the chat or channel cluttered. Also, you are likely to miss important messages between the previews. So, in this article, we’ll see how to hide link previews on Discord.
