iOS10 Messages Link Preview Image

Any iOS10 beta testers out there know if Messages uses a syntax similar to Facebook Open Graph to set things like meta descriptions and images?

I'm building a site and would like to have it ready for when iOS10 is launched.

Here's the type of stuff I'm talking about:

<!-- Facebook Meta -->
<meta property="og:title" content="Site | Title of Page" />
<meta property="og:image" content="http://www.domain.com/im-content/social-post-images/facebook image.png" />
<meta property="og:url" content="http://www.domain.com" />
<meta property="og:site-name" content="Site | Title of Page"/>
<meta property="og:type" content="website" />
<meta property="og:description" content="Here is a description of my site that will show up in the Facebook card." />


And here's the image/info I'm trying to control:

Answer

It's using open graph. I just tested on this temp page and I only added:

<meta property="og:image" content="http://ios10.businesscatalyst.com/assets/test.png"/>
<meta property="og:url" content="http://ios10.businesscatalyst.com/index.html"/>

and it loaded the image (http://ios10.businesscatalyst.com/assets/test.png) in the preview:
