After releasing a redesign for Chat Bubbles to all beta testers, WhatsApp is now working on improving other features implemented in its app.
At the moment, when you back up your chat history, WhatsApp includes all status updates in the backup, so you can find them again if you reinstall the app: their next plan is avoid backing up Status updates to save space when you back up your chat history.
It’s true that if you back up your WhatsApp chat history you have unlimited storage on Google Drive, but WhatsApp is planning this change as the backup can be saved locally in your phone storage as well.
Sometimes, people upload multiple videos as status updates, and they may increase the size of your backup: disabling this option for status updates will help to save space on your device. There is no point in backing them up, as they expire after 24 hours.
WhatsApp already excludes status updates on WhatsApp for iOS to save space on iCloud and WhatsApp will stop backing up status updates on WhatsApp for Android in the next versions.
Stay tuned to see when and other changes on WhatsApp for Android and iOS!
