Compared to the screenshots seen in January of this year, the option has changed in appearance. With the HD option now clearly labeled. When a photo is shared using the HD quality option, it will be marked with a new tag to make it easily recognizable. However, this feature is currently available only for images within conversations.

Although the ability to send HD photos is not available to all beta testers, it is likely that the feature will be available more widely in the coming weeks. For now, WhatsApp is proceeding with caution by testing the feature with a reduced number of users.
