Google Messages introduces Ultra HDR photo sharing for RCS conversations

Google Messages, the default messaging app for many Android users, has been working on an update to simplify photo sharing, and it recently added Ultra HDR support in RCS chats. According to recent reports, support for Ultra HDR in RCS chats was quietly introduced just before the launch of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.

Ultra HDR is an image format exclusive to Android 14, enhancing the messaging experience for RCS users. To use the Ultra HDR feature, users will need an Android 14 device, such as the Pixel 8 series, to capture Ultra HDR images. This support means users can now share high-quality photos with enhanced colors, contrast, and overall visual fidelity.

HDR, or High Dynamic Range, is a technique used to capture images with a wider range of colors and tones, resulting in more realistic and lifelike photos. Ultra HDR builds upon the standard JPEG format by adding HDR metadata, providing a more vibrant visual experience on HDR displays.

Although there are no visible indicators identifying an Ultra HDR image, Google Messages retains the HDR gain map, suggesting potential developments for the future of this image format and the messaging platform.

The addition of Ultra HDR support to Google Messages makes it easier for users to share high-quality photos with friends and family. With the continued development of HDR technology, we can expect to see even more impressive image quality in the future.
