Hello everyone !
Okay, there are so many things wrong in the title of this topic! I prefer a thousand times more Signal to Whatsapp, and I am not a huge fan of Google Drive either. Sadly, I couldn’t convert all my relatives to Signal, so I still have so communicate with them through Whatsapp.
I also confort myself by thinking that making these apps work fine on iodé will make it accessible to a wider community (of less-techy people), so let’s call that a bright side!
That being said, I have been trying to create conversation backups on Whatsapp, so that I can move the app to another Android profile on my iodé phone (and stop seeing it so much ). Unfortunately, the backups can be transferred on the cloud only by using a Google Drive account.
In the microG Services Core settings, I have allowed apps to find accounts, after which my Google account registered in MicroG became available in the “Google account” section of the Whatsapp settings. However, when I select the account, there is an authentification attempt (which I assume fails), and then nothing happens, the account is still not selected.
Does this issue ring a bell to anyone of you?
Thanks a lot!
