Whatsapp gains Google Drive backup

Google and WhatsApp have teamed up to bring Google Drive support to the popular messaging app. The new feature will be rolling out over the course of the next few months to all of Whatsapp's 900 million users. With Google Drive integration, you'll now be able to create private backups of your information to keep safe, and even be able to restore it if you move to a new device.

The backups will include your chat history, voice messages, photos and videos, and they will be kept safe and secure thanks to encryption. You'll be able to just as easily restore the backups as you can create them, making sure that you don't accidentally delete or lose any memorable moments. The feature will be rolling out to all users in the coming months, so be sure to keep an eye on your WhatsApp settings to see when it becomes available for you.
