Integrated compressor

I have witnessed how the ADB bot compresses some attachments,
and it occurred to me to think because delta doesn’t have an integrated compressor, which automatically compresses some attachments.

I think this would allow for significant data savings and increased speed.

Please elaborate. do you mean the html compression of @adbenitez’s simplebot?

Delta Chat compresses media, but it happens in the UI, not core code. So bots have to do their own compression.

If encryption is used, OpenPGP deflate (ZIP) compression is done in the core, though.
