As per the above image shows now the new option is available to send HD photos in-stream will give you more control over how your photos appear. When you send an HD photo, a “HD” logo will appear on the recipient’s device. This will let them know that the photo has been sent in high quality.

The optional process could be handy for those in low connectivity situations or those on data plans. If you are in a situation where you need to conserve data, you can still send regular images. However, if you have the bandwidth available, you can choose to send HD photos for better quality.

Both image types will still be subject to WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption defaults. This means that your photos will be secure and private, regardless of the quality you choose to send them in.

Message recipients will also see a small “HD” icon on images that are shared in higher resolution from WhatsApp. This will let them know that the photo has been sent in the best possible quality.

The new ability to send HD photos in-stream is a handy update that could significantly improve the WhatsApp user experience. However, it is important to note that sending and receiving a lot of HD images can quickly fill up your device’s memory.

Meta has said that the new option will be rolled out to users over the next few weeks on Android, iOS, and the web. The company is also working on adding HD video support, which could be an even more significant addition.

When the new HD function becomes available to you, you will see a “HD” gear icon when you attach an image in-stream. Tap this icon to choose whether to send the image in standard or HD quality.

If you are concerned about filling up your device’s memory, you can choose to send images in standard quality. However, if you want to ensure that the images you send are of the highest possible quality, you can choose to send them in HD quality.
