Users of WhatsApp can now send high-quality photographs to their contacts. On Thursday, Meta formally announced the upgrade, which lets users take a shot and share it in its original quality with friends and family. Mark Zuckerberg published this post to demonstrate how WhatsApp’s HD-quality photo capability works. The messaging app will roll out the functionality to users over the next week, so expect it to arrive in stages.
How Does WhatsApp Send High-Quality Images To Friends Work?
WhatsApp is now providing the function to select users, and we were able to test the tool and see how it works on the messaging app.
- Launch the WhatsApp conversation for any of your contacts.
- Now, next to the message box, click on the camera icon.
- Take a photo using the WhatsApp custom app.
- An HD symbol will now appear at the top of the screen.
- At the bottom, click the symbol to launch a dialog box.
- You may email the photograph in either original or HD resolution.
- Now, use WhatsApp to send the image to the contact.
The messaging software makes it clear that transmitting photographs at their original resolution uses less storage space on your phone and also gets transferred to the recipient faster. WhatsApp also says that the Standard Quality option will be the default when transmitting photographs.
But what if you’re in a low-network location and want to transmit a high-resolution photo? According to WhatsApp, “If you receive a photo when you have low bandwidth connectivity, you can choose whether to keep the standard version or upgrade it to HD on a photo-by-photo basis.” More excellent news from WhatsApp, as it confirms that the HD video transfer option will be available shortly.
