If you’re the one friend or family member that sends out tons of images on various groups, you now have good news. You no longer have to worry about compressing images and sending out smaller files. As per the latest feature, WhatsApp will allow users to send top-quality images without the user having to suppress them. This new option allows users to send images of the best possible quality, without compromising on data.
Currently, WhatsApp allows users to pick the picture quality. However, it does not permit users to send files in the original resolutions. Even if you select ‘best quality’ when sending out images, WhatsApp will still compress them so that data transfer will happen faster and storage space is saved.
What Is Included in the New WhatsApp Update?
WhatsApp’s new version is currently being tested and is therefore not available for testing. New information from WABetaInfo has revealed that the new version will include a photo quality option within settings. This will be under the drawing tool header.
This will be different from a previous update that automatically adjusted configurations. It is also not clear if the new feature will apply to uncompressed videos as well. Till the new feature is released, users can send out videos and images without WhatsApp auto-compressing them. All they need to do is change the file extension to .doc and send it as a document rather than a media file.
When Is the Update Being Released?
Although no timeline is provided, the new version could be close to release. Watch this space for more information as this new feature continues going through the testing phase.
