Here’s how to download the WhatsApp APK and enable Google Drive backups
Mobile going to app creation WhatsApp has introduced a whole new characteristic that enables users to generate a privately used blockage of their own communicate announcements & figures on Google Drive.
Windows Phone, Android and the rest of the users will have to be patient because this update is still “restricted” to them. So have you ever thought about what might happen to all your WhatsApp photos, videos, and chats if your phone suddenly died? Once downloaded, you should see an option to install the app. Install it, and you’re done.
Once done, you can go to the app drawer and then the Downloads folder. With rapidly increasing affordable smartphone permeation in the country, people find themselves with gadgets that allow them to use internet data-based services like WhatsApp, however, affordability often comes at the cost of memory space. Then on your device you need to visit WhatsApp.com/android and click on Download Now. While this is the version hosted on WhatsApp’s website, the Play Store version is a different one.
Once you have installed the app, you will be prompted to confirm how often you want to back up chats, selection of Google Account, and if you want to backup videos.
First, you need to make sure that your phone allows you to install apps from unknown sources, not just the Play Store. Open WhatsApp and go to Settings (top-right). All chats will be easily retrievable on a new device with couple of taps, revealed Google Drive Director of Product Management Scott Johnston in his blog.
However, a confirmed release date for the WhatsApp Google Drive backup update is yet not available. After updating their WhatsApp application, they can go to setting option in the application, select “Chats and Calls” option and opt for frequency – daily, weekly, monthly or never – for saving their data.
