That is not supported at the moment.   There used to be a plugin for Photoshop that could do it, but I don't know if it is still available.

The only solutions I've found to save vector Illustrator graphics as WebP are the following;

1. You either copy paste the vector into a PSD and use WebPShop plugin (it's free), or

2. You place an Illustrator file in the Photoshop doc and use the plugin mentioned above.

 

Here's the link to the plugin: https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/docs/webpshop

or... U can use free software as XNView or IrfanView, to do what the PAID Illustrator can´t!!!

Adobe Guys... Webp is already 11 years old, and the current standard por the web... is it too much to ask for a product not using XX century standards only? Is Illustrator intended for print only? Does ayone at Adobe use that... new stuff... called internet?

If you want to reach out to the developers, post to http://illustrator.uservoice.com

And then try to convince people to support your feature request.

This forum is 95% not Adobe staff. You simply don't reach them here.

After all these years, WebP is now able to become a standard with Safari finally adding support for the first time in macOS Big Sur. So we've had to use other formats for compatability with Safari. Yes other browsers have supported WebP for a long time (and I think Adobe apps should be able to export them), but it's only very recently that it's finally working in all browsers (but not old Safari on previous versions of macOS).

 

From Illustrator I typically want vectors though, so SVG is normally how I export from Illustrator.
