Facebook Messenger now lets you share photos at 4K resolution

Until now, the default resolution for images sent and received on Facebook Messenger was 2K. That’s just over 2 megapixels, and anything higher you tried to send someone would be compressed by Messenger before sending. Facebook has just quadrupled the default image size up to 4k (over 8MP) so you can send photos of much higher quality to friends and family now.

If you wanted to send an image at a decent resolution before now, you would have had to use a photo link or send in an email, as most messaging service heavily compress your images.

Charming Runner ‘Pukk’ Lets You Get A-Head on November 23rd

Don’t you sometimes feel like just banging your head on things given everything that’s going on in the world right now? Well, the (head?) runner Pukk, which releases November 23rd, might be the perfect way to do so while avoiding concussions and other possible injuries. Pukk, which we wrote about a few weeks back, is about a Nordic treasure hunter, a head that glides around the polar ice smashing ice blocks and all kinds of other containers in an effort to grab as much treasure as possible. As one would expect, all that treasure can be used to get even cooler helmets for that poor head of yours before heading out to bang that head even more.

And just to keep you motivated and honest, a cute polar bear chases you the whole time, hoping to give that head a nice (deadly) bear hug. Since you lack and legs to run, you better hope you slide the right way and fast if you want to stay a-head (sorry, I just love puns). Pukk has really cute visuals and should be fun to play. Head over to our forum thread for more information on the game.
