Won't back up to Google Drive. Everything was working fine till the recent update. However, when Drive creates the backup is where things get murky. It creates the local backup no problem. But when trying to upload that back up to drive, it just stays there's on "preparing back up." it's been like that for the past 4 days.

From since the beginning of the year, whenever I make or receive a video call, there is a static like..fax machine sound that is piercing to both my ears and the person I am talking to. I have deleted and reinstalled the app several times, but it keeps happening..at first I thought it was my phone so I took it to the company, but they said the phone is fine, so this is an app issue and NOT a phone issue. PLEASE FIX THIS

The update has broken the app. Drive backup doesn't finish at all. Another thing I noticed was If I post a status it doesn't even upload it the first time or at once then I have to do the same to get my status uploaded. Sometimes it shows Numbers instead of saved names when checking out friends status. Fix these things out.
