What is a WEBP file?

A .WEBP file is a WebP Image file.

The WEBP file format was developed by Google with the aim to provide smaller file sizes for storing digital graphics and images.

Google developed the .webp file format to make photo and image sharing on the web faster, more efficient, and easier for users. The data stored in these WEBP files may include digital graphics, vector images, photos, and metadata details.

This file format allows users to store digital images and photos in either lossy or lossless formats, animated or not animated, with or without transparency. It is a versatile format, primarily developed to make the web faster.
