WhatsApp backups will stop counting toward your Google Drive storage

Good news for the more than 1 billion WhatsApp users out there: starting this November, you won’t need to sacrifice valuable Google Drive storage space to back up your messages. Until now, any WhatsApp data that was backed up onto Google’s Drive counted toward the space you had available in the cloud. But the Facebook-owned company cut a deal with Google to make those backups completely free, even while staying inside your personal account. Apple users have their messages stored in iCloud, while Android users have always used Google Drive. It’s important to note, though, that any WhatsApp backups that haven’t been updated for more than a year will be wiped out with the November update.
