The upcoming WhatsApp feature doesn’t force you to sacrifice image quality

Whatsapp is currently developing a way for users to send images in their original resolution without sacrificing quality.

WABetaInfo, the discovered the function (opens in new tab), reports that users can choose photo quality via a new settings menu in the app’s drawing tool. The current version of WhatsApp allows you to choose “Best Quality” before sending pictures to keep the resolution high, but it still compresses files – just to a lesser extent to ensure a fast data transfer time. Still, this newfound level of control is particularly helpful in situations where the quality of a photo is important, as WABetaInfo points out. Not much more is known about this feature, but it’s probably safe to say that sending images in their native resolution will most likely increase data transfer time, download time, and the amount of space required on a device to store these files.
