For the longest time, when you send a photo in WhatsApp, the app will compress it slightly to allow for more speed and less data usage when sharing between users and groups. However, this upcoming feature will allow for images to be shared in what the platform dubs "HD Quality."

This feature has been in development for a while, with it first being discovered during the update on WhatsApp Beta for Android. It has been identified in WhatsApp Desktop Beta as well. WhatsApp will default to "standard quality" every time you send a photo when this feature is available to the wider public, so if you want to share high-definition photos all the time, you will need to select "HD Quality" each time.

It's been identified as well that HD Quality is not Original Quality and does still compress the photo ever so slightly. But now, it will apply light compression limiting the original quality to 90%.

It is not yet known when the feature will be available to the main update channel.
