WhatsApp is adding a ‘best quality’ setting for sending photos and videos

WhatsApp

WhatsApp is working on a setting that will let users more easily bypass its iffy image compression. And send photos and videos in the highest available image quality.

The best quality option will likely join auto and data saver choices in a future version of the app. It appears users will eventually have the choice of whether to compress photos and videos to perhaps save on their data allowance.

It’s likely the additional image quality options will come to iOS as well. Since WhatsApp generally maintains the same features across both platforms. This could come as welcome news for those who don’t use the stock messaging apps on iOS or Android and often share photos and videos of their loved ones. Meanwhile, multi-device support is also on the way to WhatsApp.
