Say I have a photo
A taken by the phone camera. It is stored somewhere, but can be seen in the stock Gallery app as well as the Google Photos app.
Q1:Are both apps using the same physical copy or are there two copies?
Then, say, my WhatsApp has a photo
B I received in a conversation. It is I presumed stored in
/WhatsApp/Media/whatsApp Images. It can also be seen in the Gallery and Photos apps.
My WhatsApp has backup set to
Back up to Google Drive Daily using Google Account
Q2:Is this a special arrangement between Google and WhatsApp, because I cannot see anything regarding this in https://drive.google.com.
In the Photos app, Settings, Back up & Sync, the BACKUP ACCOUNT is
Y, my other Google Account I have configured on the same phone. In the
Back Up device folders details,
WhatsApp Images is enabled.
Q3:Does this mean that my WhatsApp photo
B is backed up to my Google Drive in account
Y as well as the special WhatsApp backup in Google Drive in account
