As a popular messaging platform, WhatsApp has continuously aimed to improve its user experience. One area that has long been a concern for users is the quality of images shared on the app. The current automatic compression of images sometimes results in a degradation of their quality. However, this might soon change as WhatsApp developers have been testing a new feature that promises to enhance the quality of images shared on the platform.
According to WABetaInfo, the latest beta version 22.214.171.124 of WhatsApp brings a new feature that allows users to share photos in their original quality. This new feature is an addition to an already present quality set feature that was introduced in earlier beta versions 126.96.36.199 for Android. The quality set feature gives users the option to choose the quality format for photos when they are sent.
While the “best quality” option reduces the original quality of images by 10-15%, the latest update includes a new option called “original quality” that dispatches uncompressed images. Users can also set any of the options as their default from the WhatsApp settings, according to their priority.
It’s worth noting that the new feature is still in its testing phase and there is no exact date or information on when the company will release it for all users. As a result, there is a chance that there might be some changes in the final release.
The new feature of sharing images in their original quality is a welcome addition to WhatsApp and will enhance the user experience. It will allow users to share high-quality images with their family and friends, which is especially important for those who require the original quality of images for personal or professional reasons. We hope that this feature will soon be made available to all users and that they can enjoy a better image sharing experience on WhatsApp.
