Finally, WhatsApp rolling out the feature to send HD photos and videos to everyone. Here are the steps on how to send HD photos in whatsapp.

A few days ago a report said that WhatsApp is working on a feature to send HD photos for Android and iPhone. And that was available to some beta testers.

Mark Zuckerberg shared a post on Facebook and Instagram channels along with a video, “Whatsapp photo sharing has got a new update where you can send photos in HD”.

The HD photo and video-sharing features started to roll out and now it’s available to everyone.

In a statement, WhatsApp said that for those special moments that you want friends and family to enjoy in every little detail, you now have the option to share photos in higher resolution while being protected by WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption.

You may be using alternative methods to share photos. Because if we send photos on WhatsApp, the photos are compressed autometically for WhatsApp’s compression features. So that the receiver receives a low-resolution photo.

So to solve this problem whatsapp has launched HD photo-sharing features. To know whether these features are available on your phone, you must update your WhatsApp to the latest version from Playstore or App Store.

Then follow the steps below to send HD photos on whatsapp:
