Now, you will have the support for the HD video, to present your videos in high definition, unlike previous times. The feature rolled out soon after they rolled out the high-resolution image feature. The current Whatsapp update for Android, rolled out this feature for users on Thursday last week. There is a button and when you toggle it, you will be able to send videos in 720p resolution instead of their standard 480p resolution.

Here’s what you must do to convert your normal 480p quality videos to HD 720p quality ones.

  • Click on the attachment tab to open the Gallery on your Whatsapp chat.
  • Choose the video you want to send across Whatsapp and then click on done or the + tab to add it to your Whatsapp dialog box.
  • Look through the different options that indicate sticker, text, drawing icons, and tab, and then find out the HD quality option.
  • Once you have made edits to the video click on the send button from the bottom right corner to move it across.

However, right now these are the two options available to users in terms of resolution of videos- 480p and 720p. There is nothing higher than that as of now. On the other hand, users have the option to download the video either in SD (480p) or HD (720p) quality whichever they choose. 

The next thing, Whatsapp promises its viewers are that they can send videos and forget worrying about their safety. Each of these messages will be end-to-end encrypted which means no one other than you and the receiver can open this video message.

Do you need to send videos every day to your clients or office workers? Whatsapp has already made it easier for you going forward.
