There will be no alternations in the speed the image will be sent to the recipients as fast as it use to earlier. Every month people send about 17 billion images only via Facebook Messenger, this increase in resolution will lead to a better and a sharper conversation. This change is implemented after the users gave a feedback of wanting high-resolution pictures on their apps.
