What are WhatsApp backups and what are they for?

Since 2018, Android users can backup unlimited photos, videos, call history and contacts on WhatsApp. This way, if you lose your phone, you can access this information again with your Google account. However, according to WABETA Infothis will no longer be possible for free.

Although it does not report any release date, WABETA Info detected in the beta version some lines of code in the WhatsApp app specifying a storage limit in Drive. At some point, Google will offer a quota for Drive backups and WhatsApp will display a message when this free Drive space is close to its limit.

You will no longer be able to store your WhatsApp information in an unlimited way in Google Drive

Currently, all Google Drive accounts have a free storage capacity of 15 GB. However, after the agreement between WhatsApp and Google in 2018, users could make backup copies to keep their information from the app without it occupying part of those 15 GB for free.
