Thanks to the upcoming feature, you will find that image compression, which is the reason for bad quality photos, by WhatsApp will be a thing of the past!

This expected feature will undoubtedly be considered as a significant upgrade, enhancing the image-sending experience for WhatsApp users.

Earlier, WabetaInfo shared that a new feature is under development which will provide an option to manage photo quality. However, "the feature is still in development on WhatsApp beta for Android, but we have news about the development on WhatsApp Desktop beta," the report added.

While sharing a screenshot, WabetaInfo explained that WhatsApp is in the process of implementing a similar feature on its desktop application.

This feature can be beneficial for individuals looking to save storage space, and it is set as the default option.
