Unlimited WhatsApp backups on Google Drive may be a thing of the past: Details inside

There is a piece of bad news for you, as WhatsApp users on Android will not be able to have an unlimited backup option on Google Drive soon. According to a report by WABetaInfo, Google Drive might put a limit to the free storage space that it offers to Android users for storing their WhatsApp chat backups.

A screenshot shared by the WhatsApp beta tracker shows the strings that indicate notifications for informing users when Google Drive is almost full and is reaching the given quota.

Interestingly, WhatsApp chats for iOS users are backed up on iCloud, which provides a limited 5GB of free storage space. On the other hand, Google Drive, where chat backups of WhatsApp’s Android app users are stored, has offered unlimited storage space.

As per reports, it is suggested that Google will still offer a certain storage quota for WhatsApp backups. However, it will now be a part of a limited plan. Google offers 15GB of free storage to users to be used across Gmail, Photos, Google Drive, etc.

It must be noted that Google ended unlimited storage for photos last year.
