Facebook Messenger will Now Support High Resolution 4K Image Sharing

22 November, 2017 App Updates


One of the biggest gripes with sharing photos via messaging services had always been the limitations which these apps automatically put on the shared images. WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and almost all messaging apps usually compress high resolution photos which causes them to lose significant quality. That is no longer the situation with Facebook Messenger because the new updated app can now support images with resolutions of up to 4,096 x 4,096 pixels, which is about the size of photos shot with a 16.8-megapixel camera. As most modern smartphone cameras shoot at near or below that resolution, it's safe to assume that smartphone photo sharing will now become lossless (mostly).


Facebook decided to up their previous 2-megapixel limit on the messenger app in light of the 17 billion photos which are being shared each month on the app. We would say that it's about time too because 2-megapixel was a seriously low limit for smartphone cameras today! Let us know if you like this move by Facebook, we sure did.
