January 13th, 2017 by

You no longer have to worry about viewing low-quality images on your corner of the web. Google has just released a new image compressing technology that will not only save you data but also renders you high-quality photos. The technology, called Rapid and Accurate Super Image Resolution (RAISR) is meant to give you the best experience for less.

Uses less bandwidth.

The company claims that RAISR uses up to 75% less bandwidth compared to current standards. The technology will analyze high- and low-quality versions of the same image, understand the qualities of the superior-quality image and tries to replicate them in the lower quality version. In sum, the technology uses machine learning to filter your photos to make them look like they’re of a higher quality, saving you your precious data at the same time.

Exclusive to Google.

Currently available only for Google+, the technology will soon arrive for other apps. So even if you don’t use Google+, you’ll be covered if you use Google Photos.
