The messaging platform unveils its latest feature, allowing its users to exchange higher-quality photos in HD. The update, which recently concluded beta testing, enhances the way photos are shared on the platform.
To access the new functionality, users need to update their WhatsApp application to the most recent version. After updating, an "HD" button will appear at the top of the photo-sharing interface, next to other editing tools. Upon tapping this button, a pop-up will prompt users to select the photo quality. The default setting is Standard Quality, which maintains fast sharing, but users can choose HD quality to send higher-resolution images. Recipients will see an "HD" label on the photo, indicating it's a high-definition image.
This new capability is gradually rolling out worldwide and will soon be followed by HD video support, making WhatsApp's media sharing experience even richer.
