WhatsApp gets Google Drive Backup option
Google Drive in a blog post announced the news and confirmed that the new feature will allow users to backup chat history, voice messages, photos, and videos in Google Drive.
It’s worth noting that WhatsApp started testing the long-rumoured backup and restore options in April for chat history and media via Google Drive.
The feature was then spotted by multiple users; though it was removed shortly after. The feature was again available to select users in July with an update to the app bumping the version to 2.12.194.
The latest announcement will mean that the backup feature will be rolling out to all Android users in coming months.
Announcing the news, Scott Johnston, Director of Product Management said, “The new backup feature is rolling out over the next few months, so keep an eye on your WhatsApp settings to see if it’s available.”
