Now You Can Send High-Quality Images on WhatsApp Without Compressing Them


  • WhatsApp will now let you send original quality images natively
  • Available in the latest WhatsApp Beta version
  • You don’t need to use Documents to send images now

WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will allow users to share high-quality images without compressing them natively.

WABetaInfo reported this feature and has detailed how it works as well. According to them, this feature is available on the WhatsApp beta for the Android version and will be available soon in the stable version.

This is one of the most awaited features in WhatsApp. This feature has been available in WhatsApp’s rival, Telegram, for a long time.

One of the most annoying things when sharing an image through WhatsApp is the reduction in quality. Of course, there is a workaround; you can send the image as a document to preserve the quality of the image. But going through the files and finding the image can get messy, which is not convenient. With this new change, we can finally share images via WhatsApp without losing image quality.

The feature is currently available on WhatsApp beta version on Android. If you’re in the WhatsApp beta program in Play Store, you can update your app to get the feature. Or you can download the latest WhatsApp beta from the WhatsApp website and install it. The availability of the feature in iOS is unknown.
