Whatsapp: The messaging application ruined image quality

messaging application

WhatsApp is utilized by over a billion of the world population and one of the significant explanations for its prosperity is its capacity to send messages right away. It is a popular messaging app that is used by many and is a company operating under Facebook Inc.  Regardless of whether it is photographs, recordings or whatever else, Whatsapp takes seconds to send it all. It uses limited data and internet. The messaging application can do this by compacting content with the goal that document size can be decreased and exchanged rapidly. Pictures, sent utilizing the application, are generally compacted with the end goal that there is no noticeable crumbling in quality.

Notwithstanding, that has all changed as of late as a current update has brought on an irritating issue which is demolishing everybody’s photographs. As indicated by reports, users have seen that photographs sent over WhatsApp are blurry and pixelated.

Images sent are unintelligible while all different photographs have nosharpness. The pictures you received are truly pointless. The explanation for this is the way that WhatsApp has minimized the pixels of any new pictures that are sent over WhatsApp. Already, pictures were diminished to 1024×768 or 1600×900 from the first original resolution. The photo quality was respectable and the vast majority had no issues with it.

Messaging application widely rely on image sharing and voice notes

We played out a few tests to check if the cases of poor compression were right. Here’s an example rundown of pictures sent utilizing WhatsApp. The yield can be utilized to distinguish the original resolution of pictures after pressure:

Unique: 0.7MP or 1024×686 (162KB) – Compressed: 800×535 (109KB)

Unique: 0.8MP or 1024×768 (158KB) – Compressed: 800×600 (56KB)

Unique: 12MP or 4032×3024 (2.5MB) – Compressed: 800×600 (45KB)

Presently here’s a rundown of records sent before the update of the app (over a month prior):

Unique: 16MP or 5312×2988 pixels (3.3MB) – Compressed: 1280×960 (107KB)

Unique: 1.9MP or 1920×1080 (1.9MB) – Compressed: 1280×720 (142KB)

Unique: 8MP or 3840×2160 pixels (3.1MB) – Compressed: 1599×899 (202KB)

Unique: 8MP or 3840×2160 pixels (1.72MB) – Compressed: 1599×899 (104KB)

As should be obvious from the above outcomes, WhatsApp has decreased the resolution pixels for all pictures. All pictures with a 16:9 perspective proportion are contracted to around 800×450 while each of the 4:3 pictures have a most extreme  pixel resolution of 800×600.  While this has diminished information utilization considerably, it has made the exchanged pictures almost pointless.  A comparable pattern has been seen with packed pictures from online sources. These pictures only started seeing this pattern after the update which means that it will take time before Whatsapp fixed the image resolution glitch.
