Meta, Facebook’s parent company, is enhancing Messenger with several new features designed to improve photo sharing and collaboration. Users can now create shared albums directly within chats for better organization, send photos in high-definition to preserve image quality, and easily share larger files up to 100MB in size.

To send an HD photo, select an image from your chat composer, then turn the HD toggle on and tap Send. Tap on additional photos to send multiple in HD, then tap Send.

In addition, Messenger is offering an alternative to email for sending large files, as it’s now letting users send Word, PDF, Excel, and zip files directly in chats. Users can do so by tapping the + button in a chat and then selecting a file on their device.

Also new today is the launch of an option for users to connect with others by scanning a QR code, removing the need to type out someone’s name or number to start chatting with them on the app.

The new features are rolling out on mobile to all Messenger users.
