Facebook for Android quietly adds support for uploading HD video
Facebook sometimes makes some unannounced changes and updates to its Android app. A new report says that the company has quietly added a new toggle in its settings that finally allows Android users to upload HD video to their accounts.
The new HD video settings option was first reported by Android Police, which adds that the feature is apparently rolled out to most, but not quite all, of Facebook’s Android users. The report also says other new video features are appearing for some users as well, but they are not yet available for everyone. They include picture-in-picture video, the ability to download clips to watch offline later, and specific resolution upload options (from 72p all the way up to 360p).
Finally, up and down arrows are showing up for some Facebook users in the app’s notifications view. This will allow users to check their notifications in either direction, as opposed to going back to the top view all the time.
Again, not all of these features are available yet for all Android Facebook users, but they appear to be in testing for a wide release sometime in the very near future. Do you plan to use the new HD video upload option for your clips?
