WhatsApp for Android will use Google Drive to back up your data

The more we rely on our smartphones for every facet of our lives, the more risk there is of losing important data if your phone gets lost, stolen or destroyed. Android already has some backup services built in, but the massively popular chat client WhatsApp has just announced a partnership with Google to make sure its 900 million users don’t lose anything important to them. Starting today, WhatsApp users on Android will have the option to back up their entire WhatsApp history right to Google Drive. The backup will include chat histories, voice messages, photos and video, and you’ll be able to restore all of that data to a new phone when you set up WhatsApp.

Unfortunately, as with many new Google features, this one will be coming by the ever-popular gradual rollout. This is a particularly long one — Google says the feature will become available over the next few months. Once it’s available, you’ll find the option in WhatsApp’s settings. Why it’ll take so long isn’t clear, so you’ll have to just start checking your app periodically if you want to take advantage of the new feature.

Skype for web is now available in the UAE!

Problems with the Skype App on your computer? Forget about it! From now onwards Skype allows its users to use the popular messenger platform right from your browser!  While the service was announced and running already a couple of weeks ago in the UK and US, the availability of Skype for web is now worldwide including us folks here in the UAE. But to make it very clear, it is still running as a beta, so you can expect problems or malfunctions while using.

The only thing you need to do is to download and install install a plugin on your device and you are ready to roll.

The browser integrates chats and messages irrespective of the platform it is used on. “Whether you usually use Skype on a mobile, tablet, native desktop app or a TV, you’ll see your latest chats are ready to respond to in your browser… We’ve improved the way you search for people and groups on Skype. Instead of two separate lists for contacts and recent conversations, Skype for Web introduces a timeline view – a single, searchable list that makes it easier to start new conversations and find existing ones,” the note adds explaining the new features.

While some find the website https://web.skype.com already blocked for others like me it is still working, but probably that is just a question of time…
