You Can Now Back Up Your WhatsApp Messages to Google Drive

If you're one of the hundreds of millions of people in the world who use WhatsApp for your messaging, you might want to save your message history from time to time. Now, you can automatically back it up to Google Drive.

The new feature allows you to automatically create a backup of your messages to a Google Drive account you specify. You can also set the interval at which your messages back up: daily, weekly, or monthly. This backup can even include any videos you've shared. You can then restore that backup on another device, or the same one after a reset.

    Important caveat from the end of the article:
    As of now, the only version with Google Drive support is version 2.12.303. This is the version that is hosted on WhatsApp's website, but it is not the version hosted on the Play Store. In fact, the Play Store version is 2.12.304 (which has Drive support disabled), so you won't be able to install this if you're already on the most recent version. Be sure to turn off automatic updates for now if you manage to install 2.12.303 so you don't lose Drive support.
