WhatsApp Begins Testing Capability to Transfer Photos in ‘HD Quality’ on Latest iOS and Android Beta Versions

WhatsApp has published a beta update that enables the transmission of images in HD quality within the app. The messaging app owned by Meta has begun testing the feature in the most recent beta versions for iOS and Android. By default, WhatsApp sends a compressed version of any image that is sent, which can result in a loss of resolution for images transmitted via the app. However, the messaging app may soon introduce a feature allowing users to send a higher-quality image rather than a compressed one.

A social media consultant, Matt Navarra, discovered the feature first and shared a screenshot containing information about the impending WhatsApp feature. The image depicts a new HD icon at the top that can be activated to transmit a photo in high definition. Standard-quality photos are clearer but require more data and storage space than HD photos.

In the meantime, WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo revealed additional information regarding the forthcoming feature. It is presently available on the beta versions of iOS and Android

The feature tracker claims that WhatsApp will apply mild compression even when selecting HD quality. Additionally, the default option is Standard, so users will have to explicitly select the HD option each time they wish to transmit an image in high resolution. WhatsApp will add a small HD emblem to the image thumbnail in the conversation if a high-quality image is transmitted.

The feature is currently limited to exchanging high-quality images in conversations. According to WABetaInfo, the feature does not permit users to upload images in HD quality as a WhatsApp Status. Additionally, the program lacks support for transmitting HD videos. The only way for users to share a video without compression is by transmitting it as a document, a workaround that can also communicate images without compression.

The feature tracker indicates that the ability to transmit photos in high definition is being rolled out to beta testers using the app’s most recent version on iOS and Android. In the future weeks, the company is anticipated to make the feature accessible to more users.
