The messaging service hit the 1 billion downloads mark on Android back in March last year, and WhatsApp co-founder and CEO Jan Koum posted in response that the team working on the Android version was just five people in total.

Sure you could use a dedicated photo editing app to do that, but this works great for a quick fix if you don’t mind the drop in quality. Send the set of pictures and video files to one of your friends (or yourself) via WhatsApp, and then head over to the WhatsApp Media folder on Android or your Camera Roll on iOS to find the compressed versions.
