Image Quality on WhatsApp is About to Get a Major Upgrade

WhatsApp users have long been complaining about drastically the messaging app decreases the quality of the images that they send to each other. It turns out that Meta has been listening to these complaints, and the company has been working on a way to send images that will preserve the quality of the original image with all things having been considered and taken into account.

Tests for this feature were spotted last month, and with all of that having been said and now out of the way it is important to note that the UI has finally been revealed. The good news is that this feature will be available for desktop users as well as mobile users because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up expanding the number of people who can take advantage of it.

Users will now get the chance to select whether they want the image to be in standard quality or HD, which will give them more control over how much data they use than might have been the case otherwise. Data costs are skyrocketing, which makes it necessary to give users the option but in spite of the fact that this is the case many users are likely going to take full advantage of HD image quality at least for a short while.

This update has been a long time coming, with the first reports coming out back in 2021. Even though it has taken nearly 2 years for the update to get a wide rollout, most WhatsApp users will rejoice that it is finally making its way to them.

One thing to note here is that trying to send images in the original quality or HD will make it take a lot longer for the image to get uploaded and sent. This is a trade-off that users will have to contend with, although chances are that the users that need this type of feature will be willing to accept the exchange since it will help them avoid having to send images through documents and the like.
