Copying is a very common practice today. No! I’m not talking about copying homework, or taking exams, so don’t get excited even though you’ll be punished for doing that. I’m talking about copying a good feature from the competition. No matter what the industry is, this is done to keep you in the game, and stay in operation. When it comes to the technology industry, this practice is practiced the most, due to its highly volatile nature. The best example is, every social media platform copied SnapchatStories, it is Tiktok short videos.
The most recent example of this is, WhatsApp working in a function Telegram had for years! Yes, years. The people above WABetaInfo announced a new feature in WhatsApp version 188.8.131.52, which allows a user to send high quality videos on their platform.
Send Original Quality Photos, Videos in WhatsApp
As you can see in the screenshot obtained by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp plans to bring you three different options to choose from.
- Auto (recommended): WhatsApp will reveal which is the best compression algorithm for specific videos.
- The best quality: WhatsApp will always send the video using the best quality available!
- Data saver: When Data Saver is enabled in your Android settings, WhatsApp will compress the videos before sending them.
It is good to see that there is finally an option to send original quality video photos on WhatsApp which can be done from the data and storage settings of the app. We already have a similar feature for WhatsApp calls here. Users can choose to either send high quality videos if they are running on unlimited plans or connected to a Wifi. They can share a compressed version of the videos as it happens now to save some data and storage space if they are running on limited data levels.
As of now, the feature is currently in development, which means it could soon reach the beta version of WhatsApp, and then the stable build. All this will take a few weeks until we actually use it. While Telegram users already enjoy high-quality data transmission with a maximum file size up to 1.5G since 2014, that has since been upgraded to 2GB per file in July 2020.
