PHP GD webp support
The version of GD provided with Plesk PHP packages does not have support for webp enabled by default. Almost all browsers now support this format.
Supported since Plesk 18.0.27 version https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/obsidian/change-log/#plesk-18027

Please Hurry! Google will penalize us soon for not using webp. It is showing up in our speed test as a negative. https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/

I received an information that will be on version 18.0.22. But they didn't say when it will be released...

It's 34 characters that need to be added the the PHP build string. Why is this taking so long?
Is it available in Plesk Obsidian GA 18.0.20?
Not mentioned here:
I just updated obsidian and it still doesn't include it !!!!
J'attends avec impatience le WEBP pour le plesk en PHP 5.6 et PHP 7
A quand cette mise à jour ???
I look forward to the WEBP for the plesk in PHP 5.6 and PHP 7
When will this update ???
I spoke with someone at Plesk (tech support) who forwarded our concerns onto their dev team. I received this response:
"I got word from the developers. WebP support is on our roadmap, we do plan to add its support to Obsidian. Currently, we are focusing on finishing Obsidian itself and after it's global release, maybe 1-2 months after, WebP support is planned to be added."
We are using Onyx so I requested more information about that, but haven't heard back yet. I'm assuming it won't be added to that version.
It's easy enough to recompile from the command line, so we'll have to stick with that for now.
No guide for Debian is found.
We are forced to wait for your news.
Any updates on this please. We are in September now and still waiting to get an ETA.
If you can't wait for them to include the flag on install - Recompile the module as outlined here: https://talk.plesk.com/resources/how-to-compile-php-gd-so-module-with-webp-support.4/
The guide is for 7.1.11, if you have a different version just replace it with your version number, eg: 7.2.21, it's easy.

When can we expect this?
