Google One Launches with New Cloud Storage Tiers

Google One Launches with New Cloud Storage Tiers

According to the site, Google recommends manually backing up WhatsApp before the November 12 date. You can select how often you'd like your WhatsApp messages to be backed up, what Google account you want them backed up to, and whether or not you want backups to happen over mobile networks or just Wi-Fi. Well, that will no longer be the case - thanks to a new agreement between WhatsApp and Google. The new name makes sense, since Google Drive storage formerly encompassed space allotted to a wide swath of Google products, such as Photos, Docs, and Gmail, as well as files actually stored in Drive. As a outcome of the deal, backups that haven't been updated in more than a year will be removed - so it's a good idea to do a manual backup before November just in case you don't have it set to do it by itself.

Unfortunately, this only works for Android. iOS will only communicate with iCloud, so if you're using an iPhone, you'll have to back up there (and use your storage) instead.

Having said that, this new agreement will come into effect for all users from November 12, 2018, and, those WhatsApp backups that haven't been updated in more than a year will be removed automatically from Google Drive storage. Click on "Chats" and tap the "Chat backup" option.
