WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that enables beta users to send high-quality videos. Initially discovered by WABetaInfo, this feature has been incorporated into the beta versions of WhatsApp for both Android and iOS platforms as of June 2023. While the feature is currently limited to beta users, it is expected to be made available to the general public in the coming weeks or months.
To send high-quality videos on WhatsApp, users must ensure they have the latest beta version of the app installed. After updating the app, follow these steps: open the chat with the desired recipient, tap on the attachment icon, select the desired video, and click on the “Send” button.
If the high-quality video option is enabled, a small “HD” icon will appear next to the video thumbnail, indicating that the video will be sent without any compression, retaining its original quality.
Here are the steps on how to send high quality videos on WhatsApp:
- Ensure you have the latest beta version of WhatsApp.
- Open the chat with the recipient.
- Tap on the attachment icon.
- Select the desired video.
- Tap on the “Send” button.
- Look for the “HD” icon to confirm high-quality video mode.
Non-beta users can still send high-quality videos on WhatsApp by sending them as documents. To do this, open the chat with the recipient, tap on the attachment icon, select the desired video, and click on the “Document” button.
Sending videos as documents maintains the original video quality but may increase file size, resulting in longer sending times and higher data consumption.
Overall, the high-quality video feature is a valuable addition to WhatsApp, allowing users to share videos without compromising on quality. If you are a beta user, it is recommended to enable this feature and share high-quality videos with friends and family.
