WhatsApp users can now send HD videos: All the details – Times of India

WhatsApp, the popular messaging app, has announced that it now supports HD video sharing. Users can now send and receive videos in up to 720p resolution, which is twice the resolution of the previous standard. The HD video feature comes days after the Meta-owned platform announced HD photo sharing on the instant messaging app.
The new HD video feature is rolling out to users globally over the next few weeks. The feature will be available on iOS, Android and web versions of WhatsApp.


How to send video in HD on WhatsApp?

To send a video in HD, simply open the WhatsApp chat, tap on the attachment icon, and select the video you want to send. Then, tap on the “HD” button in the top right corner. The recipient of the HD video will see a notification that the video is in high resolution. They can then choose to view the video in standard or HD resolution.


What the feature means for users?

HD video sharing is a significant upgrade for WhatsApp, and it will make it easier for users to share high-quality videos with their friends and family. This is especially important for users who want to share videos of special moments.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp has also recently announced a feature that will allow users to create groups on the instant messaging app without having to name them first. Currently, if one wants to create a group, he/ she has to name it before the participants can start messaging each other.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the update on his Instagram channel and Facebook handle. This feature is rolling out globally over the next few weeks.
“Making it simpler to start WhatsApp groups by naming them based on who’s in the chat when you don’t feel like coming up with another name,” Zuckerberg said. The feature will let users create a group, even if they have not decided on a name or topic yet and need to create it quickly.
