The fact is that with this new possibility, which we repeat, it reaches all WhatsApp users in a universal way, it is possible not to lose conversations (and even videos) and the perform regular backups -something that is offered natively and that can be programmed. Therefore, it is not an unimportant improvement and the truth is that it deserves, and a lot, the base to get the new version 2.12.303 which is what allows what I comment.
To download the necessary version of WhatsApp, you must access this link and look for the button named Download. Press it and it will start a download with the APK necessary to proceed with the installation with it once it is in the Android terminal (just use the file). Follow the instructions on the screen without being afraid since the file is signed by the developer herself and, therefore, is official.
Once the process is finished, which is not very long, you will be able to enjoy the Backup copies of WhatsApp conversations in Drive And, best of all, you won’t lose these if you change your terminal or have to restore the one you have. Of course, keep in mind that the user that will be used in Drive is the one you have from Google.
Establishing a backup on the new version of WhatsApp is not complicated. Just run the development once the installation of the new version is done and automatically A wizard will open for you to set the parameters that best suit you (this is shown even before the usual application interface is visible). Select what suits you best in the different sections and press the option okay which is in the lower part, just to the right. Now every time you “touch”, a backup is made in Drive (in the Development Settings you can indicate some more parameter, such as that the work is only carried out when there is WiFi connectivity).
If you wonder how you can restore what has been done, what you have to do is the following: once a new copy of WhatsApp is installed, the development directly looks for local backups and then in Drive and begins the restoration process if so is desired. This is done in the background, so development use is available from the start. Everything is that simple and, the truth is that it is a real advantage to have this new functionality in the most used messaging application worldwide.
