There are a number of reasons to use WhatsApp, and for a lot of users, one of the biggest lies with just how easy it is to create and update backups of your conversations. If you store these backups on Google Drive, we've got some good news.
Starting November 12, 2018, WhatsApp backups will no longer count against your Google Drive storage limit. This is a result of a new partnership between WhatsApp and Google, and in an email being sent out, Google notes that some people might "see the quota benefits earlier."
Along with this, it's also noted that any WhatsApp backups that haven't been updated in over a year will automatically be removed from your Google Drive storage.
To ensure that none of your data is accidentally erased, Google recommends manually backing up your WhatsApp account by October 30, 2018, if it's not already updated.
