In SP2019 search result, when hovering on pdf search result, there is no preview (Office documents)

While search for solution, below topic is says feature is removed

PDF Viewer (SharePoint Server 2019 Preview):
SharePoint Server 2019 Preview included a built-in PDF viewer which allowed SharePoint to render PDF documents. This feature was removed from the RTM release of SharePoint Server 2019. Customers can instead use the native PDF rendering capabilities available in most web browsers and client devices.

Any alternative solutions.

Thanks in Advance.

    Hi @bhanu chandaluri
    Customers can instead use the native PDF rendering capabilities available in most web browsers and client devices.
    If this doesn't meet your needs, you can use IFilter alternatives to the native PDF parser.
