WhatsApp Could End Android Unlimited Drive Back Storage Soon

WhatsApp offers cloud backups on both Android and iOS. However, although iCloud provides limited capacity on Apple devices, Google Drive provides limitless storage for WhatsApp backups.

Regrettably, it seems as if this Google agreement may be altered in the near future. WABetaInfo, a frequent WhatsApp tipper, has discovered sections of code that clearly mention Google Drive restrictions. Consider the graphic below for a more accurate representation.

There is currently no specification of the exact storage restriction Google Drive will impose on WhatsApp, although we hope it does not go against the free tier’s 15GB limit.

This discovery comes only a few months after WABetaInfo discovered a forthcoming feature that would allow you to customise the amount of your WhatsApp backup on Android. This feature enables you to disable backups of certain file kinds, such as images, documents, and videos. Thus, it seems as if the IM app will include some means of managing the storage limit.

How To Backup WhatsApp Chat To Google Drive Storage

Open the WhatsApp app. Tap More options > Settings > Chats > Chat backup > Back up to Google Drive. Then choose a backup frequency other than Never. Select the Google account you’d like to back up your chat history to.

In any case, it’s unsurprising to see WhatsApp abandon limitless Google Drive storage. We already saw Google discontinue unlimited Google Photos backups last year, so this current decision might be part of the search giant’s drive for premium storage options.
