You can now send 4K photos via Facebook Messenger

According to Facebook, the new photo sizes will be shared "just as quickly as before".

The companies announced Tuesday that PayPal users can send invoices over Facebook Messenger, expanding a partnership announced last month that allowed Messenger users to link to their PayPal accounts for sending and receiving money.

PayPal has for some time supported Facebook's Messenger app across a number of initiatives, including adding B2C transactions past year and a peer-to-peer (P2P) payment option through Messenger a few weeks ago.

You can see the difference 4K makes in the image below. We appreciate that you continue to use Messenger to connect with the people you care about most.

You don't even have to do anything different to send the photos; just make sure you have the app updated to the most current version and shoot off a pic the way you normally would.

Facebook Messenger 4K update lets you share much better-looking photos

Starting today, Facebook is rolling out the support for 4K resolution photos in Messenger on both iPhone and Android to people in the US, Canada, France, Australia, the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, and South Korea.

If you've ever sent or received an image on Messenger, it was previously downgraded to 2K no matter the original resolution.

In the coming weeks, Facebook says it plans to roll out 4K resolution to additional countries. The feature is ideal for use with Facebook's numerous Buy and Sell groups as well as Facebook Marketplace, in addition to being an easy way to send PayPal invoices in general.

And this is yet another exclusive feature as, despite Facebook owning rival service WhatsApp, the USA technology firm says payments will only be available via Messenger.
