This feature allows you to select better quality images when sending photos. The option only appears when you select a large photo. “Note that this does not mean that you can send photos in their original quality, as this option preserves the image dimensions but still applies a slight amount of compression to the image. In addition, the default option for each photo is always “Standard Quality”. This “means you have to select the HD option every time you want to share a new photo with improved quality,” the report reads.
The report also mentions that if users send a photo with the “High Quality” option, it will be tagged as a high quality photo and the new tag will be added to the message bubble. The feature is currently limited to the images shared in individual conversations. Also, users are only allowed to send HD pictures and not HD resolution videos.
