Google Drive was officially integrated into the instant messaging service, to allow backups of conversations, photos and videos
WhatsApp and Google have signed an agreement to allow users of the instant messaging service to save conversations, videos and other multimedia content on Google Drive.
This was announced by Google with a brief statement on its blog, specifying that the service has already been integrated into the app, but will take a few months to become available on all smartphones.
