WhatsApp Begins Testing The Sharing Of Full Resolution Media

(CTN News) – Aside from being one of the most popular chat apps on Android, WhatsApp can also be used as a convenient way to send files to people in your contacts, especially if you don’t want to bother with cloud storage and access requests.

While sending media has been relatively straightforward, WhatsApp’s heavy-handed compression has been a major detractor.

It has been a while since users were able to share HD images and videos, but the need for compression is still a part of the picture when sharing HD images and videos. Now, finally, WhatsApp is giving beta testers a way to conveniently share uncompressed media.

In WhatsApp, documents are not compressed before being sent, so if you want to share uncompressed images and videos, you can attach them as documents to send them.

As a result of this workaround, the Android system file picker would have to be used instead of the WhatsApp media picker interface.

The process of locating the media on your phone’s internal storage could be a challenge if you don’t know exactly where the media is stored.

The last month, we have noticed that Meta has been working on the development of a new option within the document sharing menu, which redirects users to the WhatsApp media picker on the website.

This option is now available to beta testers through the Google Play Store, according to WABetaInfo. Depending on whether you have access to a computer that is connected to the Internet, you may be able to send uncompressed full-resolution media by tapping on the paperclip icon in the message box, selecting Document, and then tapping on Choose from gallery.

In spite of the fact that we would have liked to see WhatsApp provide a new “Original” or “Uncompressed” quality option in the HD image sharing fly-out menu, the current beta implementation is also a smart one, since it builds on the workaround people have been using for years.

With the generous 2GB file size limit, beta testers can now share their images and videos without worrying about losing sharpness, detail, or color information because their HEIC metadata has been preserved in the images.

Moreover, the feature is particularly useful when it comes to sharing HDR videos, which are often ruined by the compression process when they are shared.

WhatsApp is currently in the beta testing phase of the feature, so there is a possibility that things could change before it is released into the stable channel. We wish users worldwide would have access to this feature at some point in the near future, but chances are slim.
