Slack: Show Preview of Box Files within Slack
Currently, the Box + Slack integration auto-unfurls Box shared links that are posted into a DM/Channel in slack.
The only Box file type that unfurls to a native (in-line) preview are image files (jpg, png, etc.).
Slack has a native preview for a video file uploaded directly in Slack, but no preview for the same file when shared via Box.
REQUEST: Add in the native (in-line) preview (that already exists for image files shared from Box) for many more common file types (Office files, PDFs, mp4s, etc.) -- possibly by leveraging the Box Preview API.
Slack native previews are planned for selected file types when shared from Box

The feature is currently on the roadmap for mid-2024. Please consider that development plans are subject to change.
Any updates on when Box pdf previews will be available in Slack without leaving the Slack platform?
Hello - Is this still under consideration? Would really love this!
