WebP Media Library CompatibilIty (Beta)
WebP image file compatibility is one of those things that you need to make your WordPress site run fast. Switching over your site’s photos to WebP helps boost the speed of your WordPress site without you having to do anything complicated like adding a CDN!
How Does WebP CompAtibility Work?
WebP compatibility works by enabling the WordPress Media Library to recognize the .webp image file format. Without this, you have to FTP WebP files to your server and add images in via links.
