 Not every server environment supports translating JPEG uploads to **WebP**
 format. It is worth indicating this to site administrators in an easy-to-
 understand way. While we do have some basic PHP extension information
 about image capabilities in the Site Health info tab, it may be worth
 adding something explicitly about WebP in the Site Health **"Status"**

 **Message example:**

 **Label** - Your site does not support WebP.

 **Description** (explaining why this is relevant) - WebP image format is
 used by WordPress to improve the performance of your site by generating
 smaller images than it usually could with the JPEG format. This means your
 pages will load faster and consume less bandwidth.
