WhatsApp continues to work on the introduction of a Google Drive backup system with limited storage, compared to the current on Android that is unlimited, and has included code on its app that refers to change.
The Wabetainfo specialized portal has discovered a few lines of code in whatsapp that for the first time mention "changes in the Google Drive backup copies".
Since 2018, Google Drive offers WhatsApp users on Android unlimited storage. This measure is currently maintained despite the fact that last year these storage plans cut their free limit up to 15GB by personal account, including Google Photos, previously unlimited.
Now, whatsapp has begun to prepare a system with which you will notify its Android users when their storage on Google Drive is close to filling, as well as when the maximum allowed is reached and the date on the changes in force -de Not fixed moment-.
According to the new lines of code, whatsapp will continue to count on a space fee to save the backup copies on Google Drive, but this will become limited.
In October of last year and Wabetainfo shared that whatsapp was preparing a new function to manage the size of the cloud backup copies with which certain types of files such as images or videos could be excluded. A function without much sense when unlimited space is available.Date Of Update: 08 February 2022, 00:19
