WhatsApp will allow you to send photos without compromising their quality - voila! technology


The advantage: you will receive the image in full quality, without shrinking. The disadvantage: you will need more space on the device because of digging groups that flood you with photos. How will it work?

Over the years, the use of WhatsApp by all of us has become wider - beyond conversations with friends and family, and today it is also used as a platform for transferring files and documents quickly.

However, next to the convenience, the main disadvantage is that the images transferred via WhatsApp undergo compression to reduce the file size - which causes a loss of quality.

Now, according to a report on the WABetaInfo blog, which follows the developments and innovations in the popular messaging app, the company is already working on a solution.

According to the publication, WhatsApp is testing a new option for a limited number of users in the beta version - sending photos in their original quality.

In a screenshot published on WABetaInfo you can see that when clicking on the settings icon (gear) the "Photo quality" option has been added.

Also, it will still be possible to send the image in a compressed, lower quality version.

As with any feature that is under development, it is not yet known when the update in question will reach all users.

As you may remember, at the beginning of this month it was announced that in another future update WhatsApp is expected to put an end to one of the biggest barriers to switching between smartphones - a simple transfer of the WhatsApp conversation history.

Thus, during the installation of the application on a new phone it will be possible to scan a QR code that will be displayed on the old device, and the transfer will be direct between device to device - without the mediation of Google Drive.
