WhatsApp will soon receive an update that will enable users to send high-definition photos and videos through the messaging service, according to a statement made by Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta.

The features, which enables users to maintain the high-definition resolution of the images they share with friends and family, reportedly underwent beta testing with a small group of people, according to a post from Zuckerberg on Facebook.

You must upgrade your app to the most recent version before using the new functionality. At the top of the photo-sharing screen, next to the other image editing options like rotate and those for adding text and stickers to the picture, you’ll see a new “HD” button after completing this.

A new pop-up that lets you choose the photo quality will show when you hit the HD option. Standard Quality is the default choice.

According to WhatsApp, this decision was made to ensure that exchanging photographs stays quick and dependable. However, you may now choose to verify HD quality in order to save the high-definition version of the image.

The recipient will see the photo once you’ve sent it, and an HD label will have appeared in the bottom-left corner, notifying them that you’ve sent a higher-quality image. Thanks to WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption, all images remain secure.

The HD movies will be added after the HD photos functionality is made available to consumers worldwide over the coming few weeks.
