Feature Spotlight: Link Previews

Mixmax is a communications platform that brings email into the 21st century. We believe everything you do today on the web should be possible in any email.

Ever wish you could express the awesome-ness (visual or otherwise) of the website or link you’re sending to someone over email? Now you can, instantly with Mixmax Link Previews.

Link previews enable you to create beautiful visual previews in place of a typical unstyled link. By pasting a link to a website or image on a new line in your email, an enhanced preview will immediately appear in place of the link. Your recipients will be able to get a sneak peek of the images or websites you’re sending.

Website and Image Link Previews

If you’d like to remove the enhanced preview, just use your browser’s Undo command by hitting ctrl+z or cmd+z (on Mac), or by going to ‘Edit’ > ‘Undo’ in Chrome.

Note that link previews are only generated when links are entered on a new line, any links you enter in a paragraph won’t create previews.

We’ve also integrated with your favorite services to provide special link previews including:

  • GitHub Gists
  • Google Maps
  • Linkedin
  • Pinterest
  • Twitter
  • Vimeo
  • YouTube

When you send those previews to someone, they’ll be able to click on them like any other link and automatically be taken to that web page or image.
