Those cute little memes we all share on Facebook Messenger are about to get a lot sharper.

Facebook has announced they have just released the ability to share photos up to 4K resolution within Facebook Messenger.

I’m not 100% sure anyone actually asked for this, but if you do find it useful, then great.

To be able to share the new high res photos, you must have an up to date app for iOS or Android and be based in either the US, UK, Canada, Australia, France, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea or Singapore. For the rest of the populated world, we will all be getting it in the coming weeks.
