WhatsApp backups will not eat up Google storage quota. The two have reached an agreement wherein WhatsApp backup data stored on Google Drive won’t reduce the available cloud storage to users of Google Drive. A newly etched partnership between Google and popular internet messaging application WhatsApp has effectively made date storage of the latter on the former’s remote cloud servers free. In simple words, Google Drive storage won’t reduce as WhatsApp data builds up. Needless to mention, this is very helpful for the majority of users who still rely on the free storage that Google extends to any user who signs up for an account with the search giant.
