It seems that Messages app in iPhone and iPad has got revamped in the latest iOS 10 release. People have warm-heartedly welcome updates like adding signature and sending iMessage with bubble effects in iOS 10. Apart from some entertaining features for common users, iOS 10 also brought some features app marketers should know.
But this one (mentioned in the title) is something for those who share a lot of photos/images with one another. There are many other apps to share images with friends and family, but sending images via iMessage is a different feeling altogether. And now users can send low quality images via iMessage in iOS 10. Now this is something interesting as users won’t feel data shock (if they are using 3G or 4G data on their iPhones/iPads). This new feature will certainly save your mobile data; moreover, low quality images will occupy less storage space in your iOS devices.
Let’s now get down to sending low quality images via iMessage.
How to Send Low Quality Images Via iMessage in iOS 10
Step #1: Open Settings app on your iPhone.
Step #2: Tap on Message app after scrolling down.
Step #3: You will see an option of Low-Quality Image Mode, which will be toggled OFF; you need to toggle this option ON.
Once this option is toggled ON, images sent will be lower quality. This is how you can send low-quality images via iMessage in iOS 10.
Later on, if you change your mind, you can toggle this option OFF again. However, it is advisable to keep this option ON.
I consider this new feature as a little challenge to chat apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Viber etc. The stock Messages app in your iPhone or iPad can function similarly as other chat clients that you have to download from App Store. Therefore, it is only wise to share everything via Messages app, which is a stock app in your iOS device.
Apart from sending low-quality images, you can now send voice message and video through Messages app on iPhone/iPad. However, care should be taken that you send only a portion of video and not the large video file through Messages app.
Sending voice messages is also a nice option to send wishes to your loved ones on their birthday & anniversaries. Similarly, you can create a small video and send it to your friends & colleagues on special occasions.
Messages app has got one more interesting feature hidden inside. With the release of iOS 10, users can now add Events automatically to Calendar app on iPhone/iPad. This new feature is particularly helpful to professionals and businessmen. Whenever you receive a text message with date, time and place, a pop-up will ask you to create event. You can then create an event on your iPhone/iPad by following a few steps.
Thus, Messages app has undergone many useful changes in the latest iOS 10. Make the most of this app and make your life comfortable. Share some other important features of Messages app here. You can also connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.
