High-resolution photos are now standard

WhatsApp is also making an important innovation in photo sending. HD photo quality will soon be standard on the platform, so we won’t have to change the settings every time we want to send a high-resolution photo.

WhatsApp will also integrate with Meta AI, Meta’s artificial intelligence-based chat system. After this integration, users can interact directly with Meta AI from the search section and get information on various topics.
