WhatsApp has been undergoing transformations to expand its user base. Reportedly, the giant owned by Meta will introduce a feature to share images in their original quality. This action is part of WhatsApp’s plan to compete with other communication apps on the market. Recent iPhone developments include the testing of audio-to-text message transcription, the introduction of pinned messages, and the call scheduling feature, among others. WhatsApp plans to introduce additional features in the future, such as voice message options for status updates and picture-in-picture mode for video calls.
The social media giant is attempting to limit the use of apps such as Signal. When Meta acquired WhatsApp and began sharing data analytics with them, the app lost many users. The app had implemented numerous safety measures, including the ability for group administrators to delete messages, an increase in the maximum number of group members, and an undo function for the Delete for me option. The report on introducing the feature to share images in their original quality was shared by WaBetaInfo. The feature would initially be available to WhatsApp web users, followed by the Android app.

Share Original Quality Images on WhatsApp
The feature was discovered in the WhatsApp web client, which displayed a toggle option. The toggle allows the user to choose between HD and standard quality. Previously, the feature was reported with version 188.8.131.52 of the WhatsApp Android beta app. It was discovered that WhatsApp includes a toggle in the menu that appears after selecting a photo.
A couple of years ago, WhatsApp added the option to select the quality of the media being sent. Three options were available: Automatic, Best Quality, and Data Saver. However, selecting the optimal option does not guarantee that WhatsApp will transfer files in their original quality. The upcoming feature would be a lifesaver for iPhone and Android smartphone users who share photos.
Telegram is currently the most convenient method for iPhone users to send photos as documents. With WhatsApp’s introduction of the option to send photos in their original quality, users no longer need to utilise other messaging apps. Once the feature goes live, WhatsApp users will be able to share and store photos as an album. The feature would also reduce the reliance on emailing images for printing purposes.
The upcoming feature will also include a quality selection option for WhatsApp Web and the app. There are instances in which the image must be uploaded in low quality, resulting in faster upload times and less storage space requirements. There are no announcements regarding the introduction of the feature from WhatsApp. We advise beta users to remain vigilant, as WhatsApp may enable the feature in upcoming updates.
