WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature that allows users to send high-definition (HD) photos in its latest beta versions for iOS and Android.

This update aims to improve the user experience by keeping the resolution of images when sending, and is currently being tested by select beta testers.

After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 23.11.0.76 from the TestFlight app and WhatsApp beta for Android 2.23.12.13 from the Google Play Store, some beta testers may notice a new option to manage photo quality.

The screenshot reveals that users can choose a higher quality option when sending photos, but this choice only appears for larger-sized photos. It's important to note that selecting the HD option doesn't mean sending photos in their original quality, as light compression is still applied.

The default setting remains "Standard quality" for all photos, requiring users to manually select the HD option each time they want to share a photo with improved quality.

When a photo is sent using the "high quality" option, it is marked as such with a tag automatically added to the message bubble. This visual indication helps recipients recognize when a photo has been shared using this feature.
