For a long time, WhatsApp has offered the possibility of saving chat information stored in the cloud. This means that when a user changes terminal or restarts the one he has, you don’t lose everything by reinstalling the app. It is an idea that works quite well, but it is true that beyond this task there are no other possibilities, despite the fact that it is the user’s own data.
In this way, even if you go to Google Drive, you cannot access the information contained in the backup copy of the messaging application (to save it elsewhere if you wanted or to search for shared images or videos). Apparently, that’s going to change.
This is the change that WhatsApp plans
The information comes thanks to WABetaInfo, and they mention that it will be allowed from the application itself export the backup copies that the user has to the site that one wishes. In this way, you can be sure that you have saved everything you need on a certain date.
It has even been discovered that it will offer the possibility of to import the backup you have (and not the one stored in Drive). Also, it implies changes during the initial installation of the application, since the user will be able to access the data file that he deems convenient.
with this decision you can choose which messages are restored, because if you have a copy from 12 days ago, it could be successfully chosen for restoration.
This leads to a greater Control, which will even have an impact on the size that it has the backup, something that many do not take into account and that is sometimes excessively large.
The function, in testing phase
This novelty is not imminent upon arrival, so we will have to wait for the company to decide that everything is as it should be and that people can have better control over the backups they have of WhatsApp.
How to clear WhatsApp cache on Android
Cache is a space where applications store temporary data (accounts, files, databases, and settings). These are some of the benefits that are obtained when clearing the cache of a mobile device:
– Clear WhatsApp cache will help free up space mobile device. Usually this tends to weigh more than 1 GB.
– Similarly, clear an app’s cache as well will prevent the application from encountering errors, that usually lead the user to forcefully close the app.
– I also know will delete some unnecessary files which are only used to update or install WhatsApp.
On Android devices the user must go to the menu Settingsthen to the tab Applications and in that list search WhatsApp.
Then go to the option Storage where is the button clear cache. And ready
