WhatsApp Now Lets You Share HD Videos: WhatsApp continues its endeavours to add as many features as possible to its popular instant messaging app. In the past few months, it has made numerous notable additions and enhancements to the application. It recently introduced support for sharing high-definition photographs, one of the most-requested features. The team is currently expanding this feature to include videos, which is an additional welcome addition.
How to Share High-Definition Videos on WhatsApp?
WhatsApp has confirmed support for HD video sharing to TechCrunch. It disclosed that the feature distribution has begun and is now accessible to Android and iOS users. It is being rolled out in stages, so some users may receive it before others. Ensure that you are using the most recent version of the application.
WhatsApp users can now share videos with a resolution of up to 720p. If you were expecting for 1080p support, you will be disappointed, but sharing in 720p is still preferable to 480p. The procedure for sharing HD videos on WhatsApp is identical to the procedure for sharing HD photos.
Once you’ve selected the video you wish to share, the app will display a new HD icon at the top. Tap the icon to access the Standard Quality and High Quality options. It will display the exact resolution and file size for both options to aid in your decision-making. This is useful if you are on a mobile internet data plan with limited high-speed data and do not wish to use it.
If someone sends you an HD-quality video, an HD badge will appear next to the video. This will indicate that the video received is of exceptional quality. Again, it is a useful feature that allows you to make an informed decision regarding whether to download it immediately using mobile data or delay until you connect to WiFi.
WhatsApp states that HD videos will continue to be encrypted end-to-end. As stated in the introduction, the implementation of the feature has begun, but it may take some time before it becomes accessible to you.
WhatsApp has also made it possible for users to establish groups without naming them. As long as the group has no more than six members, it is no longer required to designate a group name. The app will automatically designate a name based on the group members’ names. This name can be altered at any time. The team is currently developing the capability to schedule group audio and video sessions. A user will be able to select the call’s subject, time, and date to allow for the maximum number of participants.
