WhatsApp New Feature Allows Users to Share HD Photos:
WhatsApp has recently introduced a new feature that simplifies the sharing of high-definition (HD) photos while preserving their dimensions. This functionality is now available in the latest beta versions of the WhatsApp app for both Android and iOS devices.
Previously, users had to resort to alternative methods such as email or Bluetooth to send HD images. With the latest update, WhatsApp has integrated the feature directly into the app, making it more convenient for users.
When selecting a large-size picture for sharing, users will notice a new option called “Photo Quality” on their screen. They can choose between two options: Standard quality (1600×1052) and HD quality (4096×2692). By selecting the “HD” option, users can easily share high-quality photos. However, it’s important to note that the images will still undergo some compression.
Photos shared using the “HD quality” option will be label with an “HD” tag visible to the recipient. It’s essential to clarify that this feature currently limited to photos shared within conversations and does not apply to preserving the original quality of the image.
Initially, the feature is being rolled out to selected beta testers who have installed the respective beta versions of the app. A wider release is expected in the coming weeks.
WhatsApp is also actively working on other features, including a redesigned settings page, a new calling button for iOS, compatibility with the iPad as a companion device for Android, channels for broadcasting information, and a “Status Archive” feature for WhatsApp Business.
Additionally, WhatsApp has introduced a picture editing tool in its desktop app, allowing users to crop photos directly within the WhatsApp Desktop app. This eliminates the need for external editing tools and saves users’ time. Currently, the picture editing feature is available to selected beta testers, and a global launch date has confirmed yet.
