How to Upload HD Photos and Videos from the Facebook App

By default, you cannot upload HD videos and photos to Facebook from an Android or an iPhone.

Here’s how you can change that: 

Open the Facebook app.

On your iPhone, tap the three horizontal lines at the bottom. On Android, tap the three horizontal lines at the top.

Hit Settings & Privacy > Settings.

Suppose you are on an Android device, tap the “Media and Contacts.” If you have an iPhone device, tap “Videos and Photos.”

Enable the following options under the Video and Photo Settings section:

  • Video Upload HD
  • Photo Upload HD

That’s all. You can upload HD videos and photos from the Facebook app from now on.

Note: You can revert by disabling the above options.
