WhatsApp will finally let you send images in HD
No more blurry photos on WhatsApp.
WhatsApp is on a roll. The popular instant messaging app is getting new features very regularly of late.
But WhatsApp is finally getting its long-awaited update that allows users to send images without compromising the image quality.
No more compromised image quality on WhatsApp
In his most recent Facebook post, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced WhatsApp is getting HD photo support.
WhatsApp users have asked for this feature for a long time, and the new feature will allow users to preserve the image quality when sent from Android, iOS, or the web.
The HD images will be denoted by a small “HD” logo that will appear at the bottom left corner. Once you update the app, you will be able to see the option appear among to the Editing Tools when sending an image to a message thread.
After tapping the “HD” icon, you will be able to choose between standard quality and HD quality. According to TechCrunch, the Standard Quality will be selected by default to ensure sharing photos remains fast and reliable.
However, you will have a choice if you receive an HD image while you have bad internet connectivity. You will be able to choose whether to receive the image in SD or HD.
The HD photo support feature was first spotted in the 18.104.22.168 beta version for Android and the 22.214.171.124 best version for iOS. WABetaInfo even captured screenshots of the feature.
The feature is not widely available yet. The global rollout of WhatsApp HD Photos should happen sometime next week, followed by HD video support.
