This will give users more control over the quality of photos they are sending, especially in situations where sending the photo in its original quality is necessary, wabetainfo said in a report on Friday.
WhatsApp plans to integrate a new setting icon within the drawing tool header that will enable users to configure the quality of any photo.
The feature is under development now and its release is planned for a future update of the app, wabetainfo said.
In an earlier WhatsApp beta for Android update, the platform launched a new feature, HD Photos. This option available within WhatsApp Settings, allowed users to choose a quality configuration for photos they send between “automatic”, “best quality”, and “data saver”.
However, the best quality configuration did not let users send photos in their original quality as they are just less compressed. The latest update that whatsapp is working on is said to solve the issue.
