In case a user receives a picture on WhatsApp in low bandwidth connectivity, he/she can pick whether to keep the standard version or upgrade it to HD.
Now, you can send photos on messaging platform WhatsApp in high definition (HD) quality, Meta chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg announced on Thursday.
“Sharing photos on WhatsApp just got an upgrade -- now you can send in HD", Zuckerberg shared in a Facebook post along with a video.
WhatsApp said that the standard quality will be the default option in which photos are sent over the app. In case a user receives a picture on WhatsApp in low bandwidth connectivity, he/she can pick on a photo-by-photo basis whether to keep the standard version or upgrade it to HD.
