How to Fix WhatsApp Chat History Backup Stuck Error?

If your WhatsApp backup process is stuck, there are several things that you can do to fix the problem. Firstly, make sure that you are using the latest version of WhatsApp. There are cases of failed backup that is fixed automatically just by upgrading the app. Sometimes, Android users need to go straight to WhatsApp web to get the latest version and not using Google AppStore to update.

Secondly, you need to do is to check whether you are connected to your storage account and have enough space in the storage drive that you use to backup your data. If you run out of space, you might need to delete some less important items to make room. To save more space, you might also want to exclude videos from the automatic backup. You can do this under the Chat Settings.

Android users need to verify that the Google Play services are installed. This service is only available on Android 2.3.4 and higher.
