WhatsApp may soon launch new feature which will help users to send best quality images and videos


WhatsApp is working on a new feature that would allow users to send images without compressing them excessively. The new feature is still in development and has not yet been made available to beta testers. In addition to video quality settings, users will be able to send videos on WhatsApp with minimal possible compression. Currently, WhatsApp does not allow this, and photos and videos are automatically compressed to fit within its restricted limit. This comes as WhatsApp is said to be getting ready to start public testing for one of its most anticipated features: multi-device support.

The two features are currently in development for the Android app, according to WABetaInfo, one is multi-device support and the other will allow users to control the compression limit over images and videos. This new feature will eventually give three quality options when sending images and video: “Auto,” “Best quality” or “ Data saver”

WhatsApp for Android beta v2.21.14.16 has been released, according to features tracker WABetaInfo, and a little code digging indicates that the instant messaging platform is working on allowing users to send high-quality images. Currently, the maximum file size allowed for all media like images, videos, and voice messages is 16 MB. According to WhatsApp, this will be equivalent to around 90 seconds to 3 minutes of video on most of smartphones.

This limit forces automatic compression of media when it is sent via WhatsApp. According to the current beta, WhatsApp is working on a solution to this problem. It plans to include a setting in WhatsApp that allows users to enable higher photo quality when sending images.

WhatsApp can detect the best compression method for certain images using the Auto option. The image will be sent in the highest quality possible if you choose the best quality option. A data saver option is also available, which compresses the image to a significant degree in order to save the data.

Because this feature is currently in development, there is no word on when it will be available to beta testers. Even if they are using WhatsApp for Android beta v2.21.14.16, users will not be able to see it. WhatsApp is also working on a similar setting option for sending videos, as previously mentioned.

Apart from that, WhatsApp is working on multi-device compatibility, by which users will be able to log in with the same account on up to four devices at the same time. According to reports, this new feature will be available for public beta testing soon.

Facebook is bringing plenty of new features to Messenger users who enable end-to-end encryption (E2EE). With E2EE enabled, you can now make voice or video calls to Messenger contacts, just like you can with WhatsApp. Anyone outside of the sender and recipient, including Facebook, will not be able to listen to your voice and video calls if you use end-to-end encryption (E2EE) option, so it’s like adding an extra layer of security to your voice and video chats on Messenger. You can still report messages to Facebook if required, according to the company.
