According to WhatsApp update tracking site WABetaInfo, backup data for Android users of WhatsApp will soon become part of the 15 GB limit of Google Drive storage.
Users will be asked to opt for Google One’s paid plan if they have a shortage of storage.
Google One users will have 3 options available, one is 100 GB, the other is 200 GB and the third is 2 TB of storage.
The monthly fee for a 100 GB basic plan is Rs. 209 while the annual payment is Rs. 2099 with 16% discount.
You will have to pay Rs. 339 per month for 200 GB and Rs. 1049 for 2T and Rs. 3399 and Rs. 10 thousand 499 respectively for annual payment.
Keep in mind that Google has made similar changes to its popular app, Photos, and relies on 15 GB of storage instead of unlimited free storage, which is also used for Gmail and other services.
According to Rahwart, WhatsApp is also working on a new feature that aims to allow users to delete certain types of messages for their backups on Google Drive, in order to save storage space. ۔
The report further states that users will be notified of any changes made by Google to backups through a notification, and will also be notified when Google Drive is full.
The report states that Google will offer a specific quota for WhatsApp backups, but it is not clear how much free storage will be available.
