Part 2: How to back up WhatsApp on iPhone to Google Drive?

You can use two different methods to back up WhatsApp on iPhone to Google Drive. One is the desktop way, and another is the wireless way.

Method 1: Backup WhatsApp to Google Drive on iPhone via Save to Camera Roll

Sure, I can help with that. Here's a rephrased version of the text:

As previously mentioned, Google Drive can be used to back up photos and videos from an iPhone. If you specifically want to back up only the pictures and videos from WhatsApp, you can achieve this by syncing the WhatsApp media to your iPhone's camera roll and then backing them up to Google Drive. This is a simple method to back up WhatsApp data from an iPhone to Google Drive instead of using iCloud.

Follow the steps below to use this approach:

1. Open WhatsApp on your iPhone and go to "Settings".
2. Navigate to chat settings and enable "Save to Camera Roll". This will allow WhatsApp to save pictures and videos directly to the camera roll.

Once this step is completed, you can easily back up the pictures and videos to Google Drive by following the next 3 steps:

3. Launch the Google Drive app and access the settings.
4. Select "Backup", then choose "Photos & videos", and enable "Back up to Google Photos".
5. Return to the backup page and click "Start Backup".

By following these steps, you can back up WhatsApp pictures and videos from your iPhone to Google Drive. However, it's important to note that this backup is limited to only pictures and videos. Therefore, this approach is not suitable if you are looking for a complete backup of your chat history.
