I happened to read this from my favorite tech website, http://www.gsmarena.com, about Whatsapp offering backup option via Google Drive. For days I’ve been using this new look, redesigned, Whatsapp (Version 2.12.44) for Android. The material design has been adopted quite well and by the looks of it Whatsapp has become ever more attractive, at least for me.
This new version, 2.12.45, when installed will enable the Google Drive backup option. If you ask me what’s the big deal with it, well it’s indeed some deal because a lot of internal storage space of our mobile device can be saved by using this feature. We all know how much of space the multimedia that is shared with us over Whatsapp, kills the space and thus slow down our mobile devices. You can use that unused space in Google Drive to give some breather to your mobile devices. Iphone users may have to wait for a while for this feature to arrive. I couldn’t find anything for the IOS, Windows or Blackberry operating systems as yet. Android users may go head on and make best use of this feature!
You can go to this link to read more about the new feature. Alternatively if you trust my words, then you may as well go to this link and download the apk file by hitting the Download button.
Have a great day ahead!
