Tiling over tile

I have a shower with dated 4 in. square tile. The tile is solid.I would like to change to a white 6 in. square tile. Can I tile over the existing tile and if so, what prep work must be done? Thanks for any help you can give.

If the olsd substrate behind them is drywall, now is a good time to just redo it.

If old mud walls and solid, no cracks, loose grout or sealers, use a good modified thinset, you might have to deal with the thicker edges where they end on the old tile.
