WhatsApp tips and tricks: WhatsApp is known to reduce the quality of the photos that you send and receive from both iPhone and Android phones. By default, WhatsApp reduces the photo quality by 70% for faster data sharing purposes. But sometimes, this can be very frustrating, especially if you need to share a high-resolution image for an official reason or just to keep it as a memory. But there is a way to bypass this auto image compression and send high resolution images on WhatsApp whether you use an iPhone or an Android device. To send WhatsApp high-resolution images, you just need to follow a few simple steps. Read on to find what they are.

While WhatsApp is great for instant communication and sending memes, it gets a little annoying when you are trying to send a really nice high-resolution photo as it keeps reducing its quality. With WhatsApp's auto image compression, these images often lose their soul and become hard to use. Well, do not worry. WhatsApp does have an option which lets you send high quality images very easily. There are two ways you can do it, to varying degrees of higher resolution.
