WhatsApp might use Google Drive integration in the future to back up chat history

By March 27th, 2015 AT 4:45 PM

If you are a WhatsApp user, you must have faced difficulties while backing up chat history and all those attachments inside those threads while switching to a new phone or while formatting your smartphone. One has to manually back up the WhatsApp data, then connect it to a computer or mail the attachment to yourself if you want to back it up, which is a cumbersome processor. Inspite of presence of cloud storage services like Dropbox, Box, OneDrive and Google Drive, there’s no easy way to automatically back up WhatsApp chat history and restore it.

WhatsApp Google Drive Chat Backup

Now, it appears that WhatsApp might be working on integrating Google Drive service to back up conversation history. This information was revealed in an email WhatsApp sent to selected members of their translation group. There were a number of references to Google Drive in those emails and its use to back up chat history and related media to the cloud storage service.

This option will also be helpful since some chat conversations include images, audio messages, and videos, which increases the file size by quite a margin. There isn’t any information about the actual launch of this service, but we think that it will become a reality after WhatsApp rolls out voice calls to all the users.
