This will make Google Drive redundant, so users won’t have to back up their chat data to the cloud service to transfer chats from one device to another.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp has also introduced proxy support for users worldwide, including millions of people in Iran and other countries who continue to lack the freedom to connect privately and freely.
By choosing a proxy, they can connect to WhatsApp using servers set up by volunteers and organizations to support free communication around the world.
“We’re making it easy for everyone to use a proxy to connect to WhatsApp. So, when a WhatsApp connection is banned, users have the option to regain access,” explained WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart.
