    It’s been a week, and I thought its just a temporary issue which will automatically be resolved in couple of days. WhatsApp on iPhone and Web.WhatsApp is Not Showing Youtube Thumbnail Preview for Links that I Shared. I Pasted the Youtube Link in WhatsApp Chat Window and was waiting for it to load the Preview Thumbnail. But it didn’t work.

    Troubleshooting Steps I have Tried,

    • Restarted my iPhone
    • Updated WhatsApp in my iPhone
    • Cleared Browser Cache and Temporary Files in my Mac Google Chrome Browser
    • Signed out all other devices, and Signed In again into Web.WhatsApp

    Still No Luck. It was disappointing and then I realised, I am not alone. Its a global problem and its obviously with WhatsApp Server Problem. Or WhatsApp may be Shadow Banning Youtube for some reasons. I have no idea why, if you know any recent issues between facebook and youtube, enlighten me.

    If you are facing the same problem, where Youtube Thumbnail not showing or loading in WhatsApp iPhone and Web version, then its not your Phone or Apps problem. It’s WhatsApp and you have to wait for some more time till they either release an update to fix it, or remotely fix it in their server to make it work for iPhone and Android users.

    There are temporary work arounds in several blogs and youtube videos, but none of them helped in my case. So it’s better to wait for a week or two to see some fix, hopefully.

    Have you tried any work around to make it work? Feel free to share them in the comments below. I will update this post once there are any possible solution or fix released. WhatsApp Youtube Thumbnail Preview will give us better idea whether we are sharing the correct video to our WhatsApp Contact or Groups.

    I hope WhatsApp Fixes this serious issue soon. till then, check the links you copy and paste twice before clicking on that send button.
