WhatsApp appears to be working on ways to enhance your conversation backup experience. The platform is working on a new feature that privacy-conscious consumers will welcome. According to a tip from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp will soon allow users to export their Google Drive conversation backups. Here's what we've learned thus far.
From a third-party provider may soon able offer WhatsApp customers the option of storing all of their chats directly on their smartphone. Currently, you can back up all of your conversations to Google Drive, but you don't have complete control over it. Users will be able to relocate conversation backups to their phone's local storage space, as well as add them back to Google Drive, with the arrival of the new option.

WABetaInfo also has posted a screenshot of the functionality, which shows how it may work and seem. It appears that the platform will have an Export backup option under the Chat backup settings, allowing users to relocate their backups. According to the article, the backup would include the whole conversation history, including messages, photos, videos, and other media items.
WABetaInfo reported earlier this year that WhatsApp may be considering imposing a restriction on Google Drive's WhatsApp backups. If the firm adopts this, users will be able to export their conversation backups to their phone's local storage space whenever they hit a certain Google Drive threshold. Users may also be able to re-upload their conversation backups to Google Drive when there is adequate space.
This is presently unknown when the update will be made available to the general public. According to the stated source, Android users will be the first to receive the new version. The functionality will most likely be added to the iOS version as well. The functionality is still being developed, and beta testers should be able to access it shortly.
