(Pocket-lint) – In 2021, Twitter rolled out an update to its mobile app designed to give you an amazing scrolling experience.
This little-known feature allows all users to tweet and view images in 4K on iOS and Android. Keep in mind that Twitter’s web app already supports images up to 4096 x 4096 pixel resolution, but mobile apps were limited to 2048 x 2048 resolution. However, to enable the new mobile feature , you will need to adjust your Twitter app settings.
Read on to find out how.
How to Download and View 4K Images
Follow the steps below to access high resolution 4K images in the Twitter app for iOS and Android:
- Open the latest version of the Twitter mobile app.
- Go to settings and “accessibility, display and languages”.
- Go to the “data usage” section.
- Enable “high quality images” to view 4K images.
- Enable “high quality image uploads” to tweet them.
Remark : you can choose to enable high resolution images for cellular and Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi only, or disable this feature.
Once you’ve enabled high-quality images in the settings, feel free to start scrolling on Twitter, and all of your images should appear super sharp. If you want to tweet a 4K image, just upload an image as usual(you will find the instructions to do it here), and it will be tweeted in high resolution. It’s simple as hello !
