WEBP file open in Google Chrome 60
WEBP files are typically found when a user downloads an image from a web browser by dragging and dropping the image onto the desktop or right-clicking the image and saving it in the WebP format. Website publishers may also create WEBP files using graphics software. If you come across a WEBP file you can open it in the Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Edge web browsers or with a graphics editor, such as Gimp, Photoshop, Image Magick, or IrfanView.
The WebP format is based on On2 Technologies technology that was acquired by Google. The format was introduced in 2010.
NOTE: The WebP Codec for Windows plugin listed below enables Microsoft Windows Photo Viewer to open WEBP files.
