If you make apps at scale there is a clear advantage of webp. Many of the @2x files we serve get an instant 50% weight reduction with zero noticeable quality loss (as compared to the tweaked jpeg). Most are in the 20-30% range but that's still pretty great. It's like going from ttf to woff2 or gzip to brotli.

I wish it was the standard over jpeg at this point. At least on the consumer/user side of things.
