Google surprises WhatsApp users with bad news

Tell me – If you use the WhatsApp application on Android phones and devices, you already know that backups are not counted in the Google Drive storage quota after an agreement between WhatsApp and Google a few years ago.

Bad news for WhatsApp users
This is a very good feature for Android users for sure since Apple does not offer an unlimited plan for storing iCloud backups, but something will change in the future.

3 months ago, we discovered a new feature under development that allows you to manage your WhatsApp chats when you backup to Google Drive, and this feature helps users to exclude certain types of messages from the backup, to save space on Google Drive.

And we immediately realized that there was something strange, and this thing is that WhatsApp backups no longer count against our storage quota in Google Drive, so why was WhatsApp planning to release a similar feature? The answer is simple: Google plans to stop offering an unlimited plan for storing our WhatsApp backups.

As you can see in this screenshot, we have shown some interesting threads explaining what will change in the future update. In particular, they plan to make changes to backups (“Google Drive backup change”), notifications when Google Drive is nearly full, when the limit is reached and information about when changes will take effect.

And this is not surprising: Google stopped offering unlimited storage for Google Photos last year 2021. According to these chains, Google will still offer a certain quota for storing WhatsApp backups for free, but it will be a limited plan. Information about the new storage plan is currently unknown.
