Send 4K Photos on FB Messenger
This week, Facebook Messenger will allow users to send and receive high resolution 4K photos (4096 X 4096 pixels) – which is as high quality as most phones will support.
Over 17 billion photos are sent over Messenger each month. Facebook are promising that upload and download times will not be affected by this change. But we should warn you that more space will be used up on your own phone by downloading these pictures at a higher resolution.
To send and share photos at 4K resolution, first update your Messenger app to make sure you have the latest version. Then open a conversation and tap the camera roll icon. Select the photo, tap send, and the person you’re messaging with will receive the high resolution photo.
For now 4K resolution on both iPhone and Android will be available to people in the US, Canada, France, Australia, the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, and South Korea. In the coming weeks, they’re planning to roll out 4k resolution to additional countries.
