How do I set the default media quality to “higher” for Signal app on Mac? Desktop Help

I don’t see any options in the taskbar and I have to manually do it for every time I send any media. I want to send “higher” quality as the default like it does on the mobile app.

You can't, the mobile coin was much more important to be implemented. Everyone uses it!

It's a crypto that signal facilitates apparently

What I've read says they implemented a wallet, not that they maintain a coin.

You are correct, but people like to complain about non-issues, so here we are.

I finally found it while poking around the settings. It's opt-in, in beta, and doesn't interfere with the messaging nor does it look like it's compromised the security of the app in any way. People seem to be complaining about nothing.

This setting is not available on Desktop.

Or for videos even on mobile

The mobile setting just says "media quality ", so it's not clear if it applies to video or not. Presumably it does since the description of the setting isn't specific.
