How to share photos in HD on WhatsApp using HD image-sharing feature?

WhatsApp has rolled out a new HD feature to share your images. You can now choose between HD and SD settings before sharing any image. Read the article to know more about this new great feature.

Clicking pictures at a party, get-togethers, and outings is fun as well as integral to making memories and putting up your status. But when it comes to sharing these images most of us use WhatsApp to transfer to each other and along with this picture quality remains a matter of concern. WhatsApp users have previously complained about the low-quality images rendered by the app's compressed output. For quality reasons, users used to forward images as documents.

Thanks to the new HD feature the problem has been solved to a great extent. WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature to address all such concerns of its more than 2.7 billion active users. After dropping several hints about better picture quality the HD feature is finally available to Android and iOS and also for web users. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg himself announced the new feature. He wrote on Facebook, "Sharing photos on WhatsApp just got an upgrade -- now you can send in HD."

With this evolution, users of WhatsApp now have the option of sending photos in either HD or Standard resolution (2000 x 3000 pixels or 1365 x 2048 pixels respectively). Although Standard quality remains the default setting, users can upgrade their photos to HD on a picture-by-picture basis. As a result, sharing photos through WhatsApp remains quick and reliable even when your connection has a low bandwidth.

Moreover, these HD photos are also encrypted end-to-end, just like WhatsApp messages, audio, and other sharing formats. It is also possible for the shared photos to be compressed even though they are of high quality. The good news is that the company is also expected to begin HD video sharing soon in the future through the app.

We have got you covered if you are wondering how to send HD photos through WhatsApp on your phone. The following steps will guide you through the process.

How To Share Photos In HD On WhatsApp?

  • First of all, make sure you have the updated version of WhatsApp to start with.

  • You need to open the chat where you have to share the HD photos.

In WhatsApp, selecting HD before sending images doesn't change your settings, so subsequent images will be sent in standard quality only. This means sending HD-quality photos requires selecting HD each time. Another significant point is that a clearer picture means more storage space and a little longer time to travel. This is why it becomes necessary for WhatsApp to compress the high-quality images.

Meanwhile, if reports are to be believed WhatsApp is also developing a generative AI feature that will allow users to create images using the app. AI-generated stickers are at work at the company. With this feature, user prompts will generate stickers and they can choose from any of them afterward.

It is also noteworthy here that this year WhatsApp has had several enhancements including the HD photo feature. Prior to this update, it became possible to access the app across multiple devices with the app's multi-device feature. And, how can we forget the addition of screen-sharing options for video calls? With the screen-sharing option, the Meta company pulled up its socks to compete with Microsoft Teams and Google Meet.

Final Thoughts

It is important to mention here that the HD features can be enjoyed by users who keep their apps updated. Some of you may have to wait a little longer because the HD photos rollout is processing slowly. But, all in all, this new feature is not only a good experience for the users but going to add some more excitement to the new users as well.
