WhatsApp revealed last week that HD photo support was coming, giving users of the messaging programme the choice to share high-definition photos with friends and family while still maintaining the quality of their phones. The business announced at the time that HD video support would soon be available. The company confirmed to Technostation today that iOS and Android users would soon be able to watch HD videos.
Customers have the option to share high-definition movies via WhatsApp, similar to the HD photography capability. High-definition videos used to be reduced in resolution to 480p due to the app’s previous resolution cap. Users can choose to share HD video now, although only at resolutions of up to 720p.
The procedure for sharing HD photos applies here as well.
You’ll hit the new HD button at the top of the screen after choosing the video or videos you want to share. You can choose between sharing in standard quality or HD quality in a pop-up dialogue box that also displays the corresponding file sizes. Then, as normal, you press submit to share the video.
The end-to-end encryption used by WhatsApp to protect shared photos and videos
The recipient can tell you’ve shared in HD by the little HD badge that appears on the shared video in the app. They can then determine if they have the necessary bandwidth or storage space to see the HD version of the video you’ve shared right now.
If you don’t already have it, you soon will if the feature is currently being rolled out.
