With nearly one billion monthly users, WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging services available on Android. And to make the service even more feature-rich than ever before, WhatsApp is teaming up with Google Drive to bring native cloud storage to the messaging platform. With Google Drive integration, WhatsApp for Android will let you create a private backup of your chat history, voice messages, photos and videos in Google Drive. Once your history is backed up, you can easily restore everything on a new device with just a few taps.

Once you enable this new backup feature, you’ll be able to tell WhatsApp to create daily, weekly or monthly backups of your messaging history. You’ll also be able to specify whether or not WhatsApp will backup your videos, too.
