When you send an email with a URL link in it, it’s pretty rare that the recipient will actually click on the link. A plain text URL link doesn’t provide any visual motivation, and it’s hard to get your message across effectively.

With Gmail URL Link Preview, we solve this problem by including a beautiful, visually appealing preview of your URL link in your email. After all, an eye-catching link preview can facilitate conversation, convey information quickly, increase convenience, and save time as recipients filter through their emails.

Best of all, with the Gmail URL Link Preview extension, you can include a short preview of the webpage you’re linking to, OR you can include the entire content of the webpage right in your email message. Let’s get started.
