WhatsApp introduced support for HD (high definition) photos and videos in August this year. Now, the Meta-owned instant messaging platform is in the process of improving this functionality. WhatsApp is reportedly testing a new feature that will allow users to share HD images and videos in their status updates. The upcoming security feature has been spotted in WhatsApp for Android beta version 18.104.22.168, which is available through the Google Play beta program.
New one report WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo claims that WhatsApp will soon let people upload high-quality photos and videos on Status. The messaging platform is reportedly rolling out the update for Android with beta version 22.214.171.124 through the Google Play Beta program. Currently, the messaging platform supports uploading compressed photos and videos on users’ statuses. This is a big disadvantage compared to competing services like iMessage and Telegram.
The report also includes a preview of the HD Status feature. As per the screenshot, the feature can be accessed from the drawing editor. This feature is not available to testers right now and is expected to be introduced in a future beta version of the app.
WhatsApp brought the option to send photos and videos in HD quality in August this year. This feature allows videos to be sent in 720p resolution instead of the standard 480p resolution.
The proposed HD Status feature comes among several other important WhatsApp updates. The Mark Zuckerberg-led company is also reportedly developing a new feature that will allow iPhone users to share their audio while sharing their screen during a video call. This will let users listen to video and music audio together when someone shares their screen in a video call. Additionally, it is said to be working on an optional feature that may let users share WhatsApp status directly to Instagram.
