Facebook app on Android now supports HD video uploads

By | 10th December 2016

Facebook has added support for uploading HD videos on its app on Android. While there is no official announcement, a report confirms that the feature has been added quietly. There is a new toggle in the app settings that allows users to upload HD videos.

The new HD video settings option has reportedly started rolling out to most users, in fact it is available in India as we have just confirmed with a few users here. Of course there are a few who haven’t, but they should get it very soon. The report also says that there are other new video features as well that have started appearing for some users but only in limited numbers. These include picture-in-picture video, the ability to download videos for offline viewing, and video viewing resolution options ranging from 72p all the way up to 360p.



Then there is a small but convenient option for notifications browsing. Two arrows are added when viewing an individual notification. With these arrows one can easily toggle between notifications without having to go back to the notifications top view.

These features are rolling out to Android users and gradually everyone should have them. It’s a safe move from Facebook to quietly roll out these new features rather than making official announcements as they can first test them out before launching all of them in an official app update. There is no info around the iOS app as of now, but probably Facebook will roll out these features for Apple users later.
