WhatsApp Will Bring Update that will Enable Sharing Original Quality Pictures and Videos

by August 29, 2023 0 comments

WhatsApp is developing a feature that will enable you to exchange films and photographs in their original quality. The WhatsApp beta for Android now has a “select original quality photos or videos” option, as noticed by WABetaInfo, in version

However, the software will regard the pictures and videos as papers. In a snapshot from WABetaInfo, the document picker for the app has a new “choose from gallery” option that expressly emphasizes being able to transfer original-quality pictures and videos.

What changes had made to overcome the image quality issue?

In the past, you had to use a workaround to send original quality media by changing their file extensions to PDF or DOC, but this new feature should help you avoid that process entirely. The ability to send images and videos in original quality was first spotted in the WhatsApp code in January.

Although WhatsApp started sending HD photos earlier this month with a new switch in the app, it still compresses photos before sending. The same goes for even streaming 720p videos on the app, which became widely available last week. But sending native-quality photos and videos is a welcome change, as it should finally allow Android and iOS users to easily share full-resolution media. Now, a new report has surfaced online indicating that the messaging app is rolling out a new privacy feature that protects the IP address in calls.

WhatsApp is working on a privacy feature related to IP address

Additionally, a new report has surfaced online indicating that the messaging app is working on a new privacy feature that will protect the IP address in calls. According to a report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp’s new privacy feature protects users’ IP addresses during calls. The report reveals that WhatsApp plans to add a new feature directly to the call privacy screen.

“This new option works like the Call Privacy Transfer feature, which makes it difficult for the participants in the call to securely locate you through WhatsApp’s servers. Since WhatsApp servers transmit your connection securely during a call, enabling this privacy option may slightly affect the quality of the call. This compromise between better privacy and a possible slight degradation of call quality is due to the encryption and routing processes on WhatsApp’s servers involved in the Privacy Transfer function,” the report states.

With this function, WhatsApp wants to provide its users with an additional a layer of protection against possible attempts to track their physical location based on call data. The feature is currently in the testing phase and is available to Android beta testers.
