    WhatsApp has always been criticized for not allowing users to share high-quality images through its app. While you could send your pictures or videos as a document, that is not a straightforward solution. Of course, photos are compressed on the platform to reduce the file size.

    Finally, WhatsApp is rolling out the much-awaited feature that lets users send high-resolution images. Now, you don't need to resort to any tricks to send high-resolution photos or videos on WhatsApp. After the feature was spotted under development in June, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, via an Instagram post (via WABetaInfo), announced that the feature letting you share high-resolution images on WhatsApp is rolling out globally.

    Do note that the standard compressed quality is selected by default. To send high-resolution images on WhatsApp, you need to switch to HD using the button at the top of the image editing tool in WhatsApp. The recipient will see that the image carries an HD icon on the lower left corner of the image preview, indicating that the image is sent in full resolution.

    Meta hasn't confirmed whether or not the images sent via the HD feature still resort to any compression. The HD images sent on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted. To enjoy the new feature, you should update the WhatsApp app to the latest version from the Google Play Store.
