Backup your WhatsApp data with Google Drive
WhatsApp is one of the chat messenger which everyone has on their cell. Regardless of the age group, WhatsApp has been buzzing around all the time. There was always a concern among WhatsApp users; how to backup their WhatsApp data, in case their cell is stolen or they are simply moving to another Android phone.
As all the WhatsApp data is either on Internal phone memory or SD card, in case you loose your cell; you are left with no option to let go all your valuable messages and memories. This might not be the case now, thanks to the new WhatsApp feature.
The latest update received from company, WhatsApp launched a new feature in its update. The new WhatsApp feature will let you backup all your chats, media, photos, audio and video files on your Google Drive. This backup can later be restored on your new device with couple of taps on your screen. Here’s what Google has to say:
“…you don’t want your memories stuck on your phone. (What if something happens?!) So starting today, WhatsApp for Android lets you create a private backup of your chat history, voice messages, photos and videos in Google Drive. And once you do, you can restore everything on a new device with just a couple of taps,” Google Drive Director of Product Management Scott Johnston.
Well, there’s always a catch, the new update is not yet available to Indian users, and there is no official news on when will Indian users receive this new update. Looking at the size of Indian users, we guess WhatsApp would have to arrange something special.
As per the numbers received from WhatsApp, there are 70 million active WhatsApp users in India as on November 2014. This is October 2015, just imagine the number of users right now. Maybe, this might be the only reason why this feature is not yet introduced to Indian users.
Sooner or later, Indian users hope to receive this highly indispensable feature.
