Facebook has announced that its Messenger app will now support sending images in 4K resolution. The feature is currently being rolled out on both iPhone and Android for users in the US, Canada, France, Australia, the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, and South Korea. The company says it’s planning to soon roll out the new feature to additional countries.

To send and receive images in 4K resolution or up to 4096 x 4096p, users will need to update their Messenger app to the latest version. Facebook has also posted images depicting the difference between normal image and a 4k image sent previously on Messenger. The Facebook post said, “We’re making significant investments in how people communicate visually on Messenger. That’s why today, we’re excited to share that people can send and receive photos in Messenger at 4K resolution — or up to 4,096 x 4,096 pixels per image — the highest quality many smartphones support. We heard that people want to send and receive high resolution photos in Messenger — and considering people send more than 17 billion photos through Messenger every month — we’re making your conversations richer, sharper, and better than ever.”

 

Facebook Messenger had previously rolled out the new Discover tab for Indian users, which will help users find featured bots, nearby places and businesses. It can be accessed from the lower right corner in the Messengers homescreen. The Messenger app also comes with chat extensions allowing multiple users to chat with a business simultaneously. Users can now also add a bot directly in a group thread and share the conversation.
