MADRID, 9 Jul. (Portaltic/EP) –
The messaging app WhatsApp is currently working on a new feature that will allow its users to send images and videos with superior quality to the current one.
This has been discovered by the specialized portal WABetaInfo, which has noticed the function in the last WhatsApp betas for Android mobiles (220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168), although at the moment this novelty is under development.
Up to now, images and videos sent via WhatsApp are automatically compressed, so that certain contents may lose quality compared to the original file, but this way the delivery is faster.
With the new feature, as WABetaInfo has shown, users will be able to choose between three different options in the storage and data settings, on the quality of the videos and photos shared in chats.
The first is the automatic, the one recommended by the application, while the second allows you to send content with ‘the Best Quality’ and the last one activate the ‘data saving’.
The application explains in the function itself under development that when choosing the best quality, “photos (or videos, if applicable) are heavier and may take longer to send“.
