The WEBP file format was developed by Google, Inc. This is an image file format that aims to provide users with around 34% 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 lossy or lossless formats. These .webp files can be opened using Adobe Photoshop, which is an image development and photo editing application. Google Chrome can also be used to open and view the graphics stored in these WEBP files.
