WhatsApp to delete all your chat details, photos & videos, you can save it here
After a new agreement between Google and WhatsApp, the latter will soon start removing you Chat details, photos & videos & # 39; s stored on Android devices report the Mirror Online.
In short, the new change is part of a brand-new app update that changes the way backup WhatsApp content works.
For those who are not aware, WhatsApp uses Google Drive – a popular cloud storage service that can be stored as a standard 15 GB for everyone – to back up messages, photos & videos & # 39 ; s.
The WhatsApp content backed up on Google Drive allows users to restore them when and when needed. However, these backups devour the storage space of Google Drive assigned to the user.
But not anymore, because the new agreement between WhatsApp and Google no longer counts your WhatsApp backups for the Google Drive storage quota. In other words, there are no restrictions for uploading WhatsApp backups to Google Drive. The backed up data on Google Drive includes messages, photos, videos, files, and even GIFs.
Media and messages that you back up are not protected by WhatsApp end-to-end encryption in Google Drive.
The new agreement would take effect from 12 November 2018 and applies only to Android users. For iPhone users, their WhatsApp data is backed up on iCloud.
Having said this, it is important to note that Google automatically removes all WhatsApp backups that were not updated more than a year ago.
Google suggests that users must manually back up their WhatsApp accounts by November 12, 2018, to prevent losing backups. That's how you can do it.
Manual backup of WhatsApp
- Be sure to install Google Drive on your phone.
- Go to WhatsApp and then go to Menu (3 dots top right)> Settings> Chats> Chat backup. Select Backup and you will automatically see that a backup of Google Drive is being made.
Before you get started, please check if you are connected to Wi-Fi, because WhatsApp can be large and can use too much internet data.
