Madrid: World's most popular instant messaging application WhatsApp has confirmed that any users who have not backed up their stored data and chats on Google Drive will lose their chat histories.

WhatsApp, which is owned by tech giant Facebook, had reached an agreement with Google last August to store user content on the Google Drive cloud storage service without said data affecting the user's maximum memory limit.

WhatsApp has also warned that any backups that hadn't been updated in over a year would also be automatically removed from the Google Drive storage.

This will also allow users to easily reload their data on different or new Android smartphones.

The users of Android can update their copy and configure its update frequency as long as they have a personal account on Google.
