URL Preview options
However, I would like to have the ability to enable/disable the URL preview and going further, it would be nice to be able to enable/disable by URL.
Example: we use JIRA, it would be nice to disable the preview for specific sites like JIRA, but maybe still leave it enabled for other URLs.

I would like to disable all previews by default. Or if your Teams teams like the previews too much, please do it like in Messenger: provide the ability to delete the link itself while preserving the preview.

The previews are one of the worst things to happen to Teams since its introduction. Please please please get rid of this.
These "previews" end up being nothing more than advertisements that often block actual text content. Please provide a user switch to turn them off. What we have now is millions of users paying a senseless productivity tax.
So after 3 years there no sing this will be developed.
Microsoft, please make this a user choice. It's annoying to say the least.
I loathe this feature. It needs to be a user choice; enabled/disabled in the Teams app settings.
I see URL preview for GENERAL and the standard channels, but in a private channel, therei is not URL preview. Is this normal?

I hate these previews. They wouldn't be a problem IF:
- A lot smaller
- Slow internet connections wouldn't affect where they are placed
- They stay away on a message once I clicked them away
Really hate URL previews. Especially hate to remove it manually every time. Let's fix it already.
100% of the time I am removing the preview when pasting in links to webpages. There really should be a way to stop that preview being added. Most annoying and a time waster for me.

95% of the time, I have to manually remove that preview, because it just shows some Login page. People over at Microsoft apparently are not aware that some websites require authentication to be viewed, given how long standing this issue is.
Is there a possiibility to disable sharing URL in Teams chat
URL previews are just annoying for me.
However, my organization is too large for my msteams Admin to care about this, and I guess many users still want URL Previews.
So this would help me a lot as opt-out feature adjustable at user level.

You can disable the URL preview from Microsoft Teams Admin Center, more detailed explanation here

Follow this instruction to disable URL preview
Agreed with removing altogether. Was there a user voice for the feature? Seems highly unusual to have a feature and then a user voice to permit it being disabled. If we started with the User Voice this probably wouldn't have been needed.
Remove it all together. This serve no purpose

Please make this a user option... it's so annoying. One of the worst UI sins you can make is moving something that the user is actively looking at. Typing a message quickly, pasting a link, and typing more text is not possible without interruption of the preview (I never want to send a preview).

It seems an idividual+per team based choise if uls should be previewed or not is requested by many.
Kind of Duplicates:
""You can turn off url preview in Messaging Policies in the Teams Admin Center."
Where is this admin center?"
