Many WhatsApp users have an unusual deadline popping up on their screens. You need to act fast because you don't have much time.

Important – WhatsApp is constantly changing. Parent company Meta regularly introduces new features to the popular messaging service. However, some users should be careful now: a 30-day deadline appears on many mobile devices. If you do not act quickly in this case, important data may be lost.

The size of the backup was not important because Google Drive storage space was not taken into account. WhatsApp recently announced its desire to make data transfer easier.

But that will soon end: From now on, WhatsApp backups will also consume storage space on Google Drive. Users whose storage capacity has been exceeded by this change will receive a notification telling them that they only have 30 days to save their chats and data elsewhere, the portal reported. Unnecessary data will then be deleted automatically and in chronological order.

This change does not affect those who have not previously backed up their chat history to their Google account. However, users can still save their WhatsApp chat history to the cloud. The messaging service has taken the following steps:

  • Activate Google account on the device
  • Google Play Services installed
  • Sufficient storage space on the smartphone
  • Sufficient storage space on your Google account
  • More options > Settings > Chats
  • Chat Backup > Google Account Backup

For the basic subscription, which offers decent storage space, users pay €1.99 per month. For the premium version, which offers 2 TB of storage, users pay €9.99 per month.
