WhatsApp is experimenting with sending high-definition videos.

What you must understand
When attempting to send a video, several WhatsApp beta testers reportedly spotted a new HD button.
WhatsApp is rumoured to lightly compress the videos you send, so they don't get transferred in their undamaged state.
You will need to manually pick "HD quality" each time you select a video to send because the default quality is still set to standard.

Despite being one of the most widely used messaging apps, WhatsApp isn't the best option for exchanging high-quality images and movies. With a new experimental feature that allows users to exchange HD films, the messaging platform may at long last remedy this flaw in the future.

According to WABetaInfo, the Meta-owned service just brought out an update to the beta version of WhatsApp for Android (version that includes the choice to keep a video's original resolution when transmitting it to a friend or relative. The outlet claims that you still can't send videos that have had some modest compression added to them before being transmitted.

Contrast that with popular messaging apps like Telegram, which permit sending of uncompressed images and movies as long as the file size doesn't go over the 2GB restriction.

Contrarily, WhatsApp limits the size of video files to a measly 16GB. You must share videos or photographs as documents in order to take advantage of this function, even though you can transfer files up to 2GB in size. As an alternative, you can zip up all of your media files before emailing them.
