Do you run WhatsApp on Android smartphone? If yes, then pay attention! A big facility available to you on WhatsApp is going to end. The WhatsApp chats and media files you backup will now count towards the cloud storage limit of your Google account. This means that the 15GB free cloud storage that Google gives to every user will now also include backup of WhatsApp chats and media. After this, if users need cloud storage, then they will have to buy the storage by paying money.

Google made this change Android/thread/243899327/upcoming-changes-to-whatsapp-chat-history-backup-on-Android?hl=en” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”>Announcement Is of. The company has said that WhatsApp chats and media backups on Android will be counted towards the cloud storage limit of the user’s Google account from December 2023. Keep in mind that till now Google used to offer free storage to Android smartphone users to backup WhatsApp chats. This storage was additional to the 15 GB storage available with Google account.

The new change will hurt those users whose cloud storage limit has reached close to 15 GB and they have to create a huge backup of WhatsApp chats and media files. This change is starting from December 2023 for beta users of WhatsApp. This change will be implemented for all Android users in the first half of the year 2024.

Google says that the free storage it provides to Android users is much more than the free storage provided by Apple in iCloud. In the future, if Android users want to make a backup of WhatsApp chats and the storage on the cloud is exhausted, then the users will have to free up the storage first. The good thing is that Google offers a special tool to its users to delete large files simultaneously. Those Google users who have a subscription to Google Workspace will not be affected by this decision.
