WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that allows users to share videos in high definition (HD). Similar to the way you send and receive images in HD, this update enables you to share videos in higher quality. It’s worth noting that the maximum quality for these videos is set at 720p.
WhatsApp is now in the process of rolling out a new feature that allows users to share videos in high definition (HD). Just a week ago, this messaging platform unveiled the capability to send high-resolution images, with a promise to extend this feature to videos as well.
Owned by Meta, the platform has recently confirmed to TechCrunch that the ability to share and receive HD videos is currently being introduced to both Android and iOS users.
Much like the process of sending images in high-definition, the HD video feature can be activated when you’re about to share a video with others. Up until now, videos on the platform were confined to a resolution of 480p. However, this has evolved with the introduction of the option to enable 720p high-definition video sharing.
To share videos in HD quality, follow these steps: While uploading a video, tap the ‘HD’ button located at the top of the screen. This action will present you with the choice to share the video in ‘HD Quality,’ accompanied by the corresponding file size.
Just like text messages, calls, and images, WhatsApp ensures the security of videos through end-to-end encryption. When someone sends a high-definition (HD) video, you can easily identify it by observing the small ‘HD’ badge located on the bottom left corner of the message thumbnail.
WhatsApp has announced that the functionality to share videos in high definition (HD) is gradually being made available to all users. If you currently don’t have access to this feature on your device, rest assured that it should become available within the upcoming days.
During this month, the company introduced a variety of new features for its instant messaging application. These include the option to share screens during video calls, engage in voice chats within groups, edit captions of sent media, and even form groups without assigned names, among other enhancements.
