In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android 18.104.22.168 update, we shared information about a new feature under development: an option to manage photo quality. Thanks to this feature, it will finally be possible to send photos in their original quality. The feature is still in development on WhatsApp beta for Android, but we have news about the development on WhatsApp Desktop beta:
As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp is also working on bringing the same option to the desktop app. The feature will allow users to send images in their original quality, preserving their resolution and clarity. This is a great improvement compared to the current image compression that occurs when sending images. People will no longer have to worry about their images losing quality or resolution when sending them.
Note that you will be still in control over sending images even with the introduction of this feature. When this feature is made available to beta testers, they will still be able to continue sending photos using the standard compression method, which can be useful for those who wish to conserve storage space, and it is always the default option.
The ability to send photos in their original quality is under development and it will be released in a future update of the app. As always, we’re going to post an additional article when we have further details to share with you.
