APK Notes:

Whatsapp 2.12.231
Google Drive Backup for all

This release does not have a Play Store Description, so we grabbed one from version 2.18.190:

WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.


• NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family, so you don't have to pay for every message or call.* There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp.

• MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.

• FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they're in another country.* WhatsApp calls use your phone's Internet connection rather than your cellular plan's voice minutes. (Note: Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. Also, you can't access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp).

• GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group chats with your contacts so you can easily stay in touch with your friends or family.

• WHATSAPP WEB: You can also send and receive WhatsApp messages right from your computer's browser.

• NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There's no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.*

• SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone's existing address book.

• ALWAYS LOGGED IN: With WhatsApp, you're always logged in so you don't miss messages. No more confusion about whether you're logged in or logged out.

• QUICKLY CONNECT WITH YOUR CONTACTS: Your address book is used to quickly and easily connect you with your contacts who have WhatsApp so there's no need to add hard-to-remember usernames.

• OFFLINE MESSAGES: Even if you miss your notifications or turn off your phone, WhatsApp will save your recent messages until the next time you use the app.

• AND MUCH MORE: Share your location, exchange contacts, set custom wallpapers and notification sounds, email chat history, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, and more!

*Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details.

    Yup, can confirm. Change-log true.

  • J.J

    Hmm… I don’t have it. I think it is still a server-side update.

    • PacMan

      Okay, yes you are correct. One of my devices still doesn’t have it.

      • Yes it is still a server-side update, because I have 2.12.229 and today I got Google Drive backup.

    • Alex193a

      It has never been a server-side update!
      If you have root you can enable it by yourself …
      It is possible since 2.12.214 version.

      Look my tutorial here: www . rapido. fr . it/ file_articoli/ TutorialWAGD . html

      (delete the spaces in the link xD)

      • PacMan

        Hence, the server side implementation.

  • Finally :)

    • De todas formas, no veo la opción.
      Anyway, I didn’t see that option.

  • Diego

  • devil

    Finally, Nice work!

    Smart backup.
    I backed up to Google Drive 199 MB. After messaging about a hour, I’ve tried to backup again and it backed up just 10 MB file. Brilliant!

  • serria

  • TimoViBritannia
