Facebook Messenger has recently gotten some pretty cool updates. For instance there’s the ability to share Apple Music and Spotify tunes, send cash to friends and also new video chat filters.
But that’s not all. Now the company is improving photos. Now you can send and receive photos via the messaging service at 4K resolution and at the same speed as your regular photos to boot. I wonder how many other cool updates they have coming. I guess will we have to watch and see what happens.
According to Facebook, people are sharing 17 billion photos via Messenger each month and the bump to 4K will make “your conversations richer, sharper, and better than ever.” It sounds good to us. So now you can send those 4k photos to your family and friends as often as you like and just enjoy. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to update your Messenger app to the latest version. After that the rest happens automatically.
As you probably know 4K photos are available right now on iPhone and Android in the US, Canada, France, Australia, the UK, Singapore and South Korea, with the feature rolling out to more countries in the coming weeks.
