As a effect of the deal, backups that haven't been updated in more than a year will be removed - so it's a good idea to do a manual backup before November just in case you don't have it set to do it by itself.

First spotted by users on reddit, (and pointed out via Android Police) the Google Issue Tracker entry simply points out that there's no way to manually initiate a backup to Google Drive. The new Drive plans are called Google One and they start at $1.99 per month for 100GB of additional storage, $2.99-per-month for 200GB of storage going up to the $9.99-per-month for 2TB of storage. You can select how often you'd like your WhatsApp messages to be backed up, what Google account you want them backed up to, and whether or not you want backups to happen over mobile networks or just Wi-Fi. We too received an email from Google, a screenshot of which has been attached below.

Whether it is to backup your original photos or to collaborate with your co-workers, Google Drive is a flexible cloud storage solution that works across multiple platforms. The new option, which is likely to ease the backup process especially if you instantly need to preserve your personal data, will be a part of a future Android update. To avoid any potential loss of data, it is recommended that you perform a manual WhatsApp backup before November 12. Right now, you lose your precious drive space when you backup WhatsApp chats.
