WhatsApp announces the feature to upload videos in their original quality
WhatsApp is the most used messaging app in the world, but it’s not the best. Dozens of jobs are, in most cases, below the competition. WhatsApp has been updated little by little to improve the quality of its functions, like those in the news today. The app changes the way videos are sent through conversations. From now on, the user will be able to choose the quality of the transmission so that he does not have to compress the file. No more sending videos in the worst possible quality!
Finally, WhatsApp allows you to upload videos in their original quality…a feature that everyone requests
So far, sending a video on WhatsApp has boiled down to doing so with mediocre quality. You can record in 4K at 60 frames per second using your smartphone, but when you send it to a friend on WhatsApp, it gets compressed and loses its quality almost completely. Additionally, the platform imposes a MB limit per video.
This is fixed thanks to the new functionality that WhatsApp is already testing in beta. Users will be able to choose the video quality before sending it. This means that if you request it, your video will not be compressed and the other user will be able to see it in the original quality.
So far, doing this using WhatsApp has been rather tedious, as it can only be done by sending a document. Now it will be much easier, as a popup will ask you what you want to do before sending it.
Of course, if you shoot a 4K video and send it without compression, it will take much longer to send. The user receiving it will also take longer to download it.
However, it is very good news, because WhatsApp allows you to choose the best option for you. It is something that many users have requested over the years and will finally make it to the app. At the moment, it is being tested in beta, so it could reach the stable version in a couple of weeks.
