One of the easiest ways to send photos from one device to another is to do it using WhatsApp. However, until now these photographs could not be sent at full resolution. Neither in the mobile version nor in WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp Desktop.
Taking into account that half a year ago the file limit was increased to 2 GB, leaving behind 100 MB, it was to be expected that soon they could be sent without losing an iota of quality. And while the WhatsApp mobile beta has already shown this path, it seems that WhatsApp Web is also on the way to incorporating this feature.
Goodbye to image compression, also on WhatsApp Web
As we already explained, several weeks ago we saw how the Android beta began to integrate a functionality that would allow images to be sent at the highest possible resolution. Now, as revealed in WABetaInfo, work is also underway to bring it to WhatsApp Web.
This can be observed at the same moment that we send an image, since within the options the possibility of send the photo in “standard” or “HD” quality. It will be that second option that allows you to send the photographs in their highest possible resolution.
And it is that, in case you did not know, currently there is compression in the images that are sent. And this is the main reason why it may not always be the best idea to share them through WhatsApp, be it in its mobile version, desktop app or web.
It should be said that, as with other functions that are still under development, it cannot yet be accessed normally. Therefore, it will have to wait for this functionality to end up reaching all WhatsApp Web users in a general way. While it may take several months to integrate, this shouldn’t be a complex enough feature to take that long.
