WhatsApp Windows Phone beta adds OneDrive message backups

WhatsApp has updated its Windows Phone beta app, adding the ability for users to back up their text messages and media on Microsoft's OneDrive storage service.

Whatsapp Onedrive

The new OneDrive feature (via MSPU) is enabled by going to Settings > Chat and Security > Backup. Users can set up their backups to launch on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, or simply manually. There's also a setting to only allow backups when connected to Wi-Fi. This feature will likely be added to all WhatsApp Windows Phone users in the future.
