Earlier this year we saw how WhatsAppMeta’s messaging application par excellence, was working on an option that users have been demanding for a long time, be able to send photos in original quality. It seems that whatsapp it is starting to implement this new feature to some users of the beta version for Android and iOSspecifically versions 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 respectively.
With this new feature, which we assume will soon reach all users of the application, it will be possible to choose to send compressed images like so far or also preserving the original resolution and quality. This is something that has been in demand for quite some time, as competing apps already include this feature for quite some time. If you have this beta version of WhatsApp and you are one of the lucky ones who can try this new feature, only you will have to press the HD button located above the photograph to choose with what quality to send it, in case of doing so without loss of quality photos will be marked as HD.
At the beginning of the use of WhatsApp, where we depended to a greater extent on WiFi networks or plans with scarce and slow mobile data, sending the compressed photos was an advantage. But currently, and with an increasing amount of mobile data available (even unlimited), higher internet speeds, and better quality on the screen of the devices, It is a more than necessary option to be able to see and share our memories in the form of photographs in detail.
