Twitter announced that all users now have the option to view and upload 4K images from their mobile applications available.
To enjoy this new option, you just have to update the app and go through a small configuration in your Twitter account.
So you can view or upload 4K images on Twitter
Although the web version of Twitter allows you to upload high resolution images, its apps only support a maximum resolution of 2048 x 2048. A situation that is about to change.
Twitter was already testing the upload of 4K images from the mobile app for months with a small group of users, but now it is extended to all. It is not an option that is configured by default in our Twitter account, so we will have to make some changes if we want to enable it, according to our needs.
To do this, you only need to go to Settings and privacy >> General >> Data usage >> Images. In this section you will find two options to enable the display and loading of images in 4K. You can select if you allow this type of images when you have mobile data and WiFi, only WiFi or never.
The first option Upload high quality images is the settings for uploading 4K images in your tweets. And on the other hand, the High quality images option has to do with the visualization of 4K images, so here you will be enabling whether or not you want to see them in your timeline.
So you can use these configuration options to enjoy this new possibility that Twitter provides without posing a danger to your mobile data plan. And if you are one of those who share their photos of travel, food and more on their Twitter account, now you can upload the high resolution images from your mobile so that your followers do not miss any detail.
Remember that it is not the only option that Twitter has dedicated to images. As we told you last month, it is testing different ways of viewing the images from the mobile. A dynamic that seeks to solve the problem of image clipping, although it is still a function that is still being tested.
