A piece of bad news for WhatsApp users as both Google and WhatsApp will be removing the unlimited storage quote for WhatsApp backups. This new limitation has been found in the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 and is now available to a few beta testers but this limitation will reach everyone else’s account in the next months.
WhatsApp and Google might stop offering unlimited storage for backups and this is quite sad news for those who send or receive media on their WhatsApp accounts on a regular basis as it increases the backup sizes. The Company has also introduced a new way by which you can transfer your chats to other Android phones without using Google Drive but that feature is currently not available to everyone.

In addition, WhatsApp will remind you through in-app alerts via notifications. The new change will impact those Android users who have heavy media consumption on their WhatsApp accounts but now Google wants you to subscribe to their most-effective basic plan which is offering 100GB for 1.99$ per month. Currently, Google is offering 15GB of free storage space without any additional cost to upload your WhatsApp backups or other stuff in one Gmail account.
Users can also take advantage of a new Gmail account just for WhatsApp backups but that is also not enough for some people. The only way is to subscribe to the Google One Basic Plan or higher according to your needs or wait for WhatsApp to implement any other cloud services to upload your backups which is not confirmed yet.
