How to Restore WhatsApp Messages on Android


Losing old WhatsApp messages can be a pain, especially if you’ve had important conversations with a number of people.

Knowing how to back up and restore these messages would be a great idea, just in case the unexpected happens. In this article, we’ll teach you how to restore WhatsApp messages on your Android device.

Back Up on Google Drive

WhatsApp stores any message data on your local storage, which can either be an SD card or phone memory, or Google Drive if backup is enabled. Backing up data is generally a good idea if only to prevent the loss of information. Keeping your data saved on the Cloud ensures that you can get it back, either on an old or new device.

If you don’t backup files to Google Drive, WhatsApp will restore files from your internal phone storage. Internal phone storage backups will only save seven days-worth of messages and the rest will be lost.
