Android and iOS users will be able to share HD photos with the new feature of Whatsapp!

Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature on Android and iOS beta that allows users to send high-definition (HD) photos.

As per the WABetaInfo report, with this new feature, users can select better quality while sending photos, but the option appears only when users select the larger size photo.

Although this feature preserves the image dimensions, a slight compression will be applied to the photo, thus it is not possible to send photos in original quality.

The default option for all images will always be 'Standard quality', therefore, users will have to select the HD option every time to send a better-quality image.

When sending photos with the 'high quality' option a new tag will be added to the message bubble to inform the receiver that the photo has been sent using this feature.

The ability to send HD photos is currently rolling out to a few beta testers on Android and iOS, and is expected to roll out to more users in the coming weeks, the report added.

In January this year, it was reported that the messaging platform was working on the feature for Android beta, and meanwhile, another report next month mentioned that the feature is being worked on for iOS beta.
