Chat now has rich HTML-embeds

The chat is one of the most important part of use experience. And that experience just got a bit better! Now when you post a link on the chat we automatically fetch some details about it and show them below your message.

There are rich embeds of YouTube videos, SoundCloud audio, Mixcloud audio, audio and Instagram images.

Links to other Web sites display a title of the linked page if one is available, and links to images display the image (albeit behind one “show”-click so not to pollute your chat window with unwanted NSFW-material).

This is just the first step of inlined media and the user experience will get better in time. Comment below your suggestions for other integrations!
