The Meta-owned platform now appears to be testing a new feature called WhatsApp has launched a new features to send hd photos that enables users to share high definition photos with their friends and family.
A new HD photo quality option has been added to WhatsApp’s recent beta versions for both iOS and Android, according to a recent report by WABetaInfo.
When users upload images to WhatsApp, the image is automatically compressed, but with the new feature, high-resolution photos will be able to be sent.
How Does This New Feature Works?
Despite the fact that new features keep image dimensions intact, light compression is still used, and the images are not sent in their original resolution. Another thing to keep in mind is that the “Standard quality” setting will always be the default when sharing a photo; to send the photo in high resolution, you must click the HD button.
New Tag Feature For The Update
In order to make it clear to the recipient when a photo has been sent using the feature, WhatsApp also adds a new tag to the message bubble. Currently, only photos shared within conversations can be sent in HD.
WhatsApp has launched a new features to send hd photos. But it has been known since January this year that the messaging platform was working on this feature for Android beta.

The new feature is currently accessible on WhatsApp beta for iOS 188.8.131.52 and WhatsApp beta for Android 184.108.40.206. But don’t be hasty as it will soon be available for everyone as the developers are currently working on its compatiblity.
