The only thing that I really worry about when I drop my phone into a tub of water is if I’ve backed everything up. More specifically, did I back my messages up. There is so much important information that flows through my text messages, it’s scary.
Fortunately, starting today WhatsApp will offer to automatically back up and upload your chat history to Google Drive.
The backup will include chat histories, voice messages, photos and video, and you’ll be able to restore all of that data to a new phone when you set up WhatsApp.
