“I have taken a backup of my WhatsApp Business account a while back and now I wish to restore it. Can someone tell me how to restore WhatsApp business backup to my phone?”

To make it easier for small businesses to communicate with their customers, WhatsApp has come up with a dedicated Business app. Though, there are times when we switch devices, we wish to restore WhatsApp Business chat. After all, the backup can have important details about your leads that you might not wish to lose. Don’t worry – I’m here to help you perform WhatsApp Business restore in three different ways.

Part 1: Restore WhatsApp Business Chat from iCloud to iPhone

If you have an iPhone, then chances are that you could have taken the backup of your WhatsApp Business app on iCloud. By default, Apple provides 5 GB of free space on iCloud that we can utilize as per our needs. If you have connected your WhatsApp Business to your iCloud, then you can easily take its backup. Though, to restore WhatsApp Business chat from it, make sure you meet these prerequisites:

  • • Your iPhone should be linked to the same iCloud account where your backup is saved.
  • • While setting up WhatsApp, enter the same phone number that was used to back up your chats.

Once you have met these prerequisites, just follow these steps to learn how to restore WhatsApp Business backup.

  1. Firstly, reinstall WhatsApp on your iPhone if you are already using it and launch it. While performing its setup, enter the same phone number where the backup is stored. The number should be active on your iPhone presently.
  2. After verifying the number with a unique code, the application will automatically detect the presence of a backup file. To get this option, your iPhone should be linked to the same iCloud account in advance.
  3. Now, just tap on the “Restore Chat History” button and wait for a while as the WhatsApp Business restore is completed. Try to maintain a stable internet connection and don’t close the WhatsApp Business app in between.

Part 2: Restore WhatsApp Business Backup from Google Drive to Android

Just like iPhone, Android users can also backup their WhatsApp Business Data to their linked Google Drive account. Since WhatsApp backup doesn’t accumulate any space on Drive storage anymore, it lets us save our chats easily. Just like restoring an iCloud backup, this method will have the same requirements.

  • • The Android phone should be linked to the same Google Drive account where your backup is saved.
  • • You must link your WhatsApp to the same phone number that you used to backup your data.

To learn how to restore WhatsApp Business backup to an Android using Google Drive, follow these steps:

  1. Just launch WhatsApp on your Android and perform its initial setup. If you are using it on your device already, then you need to reinstall WhatsApp.
  2. Now, enter your phone number that was used on your device before and confirm it by verifying the one-time generated code.
  3. If your Android is connected to the internet and linked to the same Google account, then it will detect the presence of an existing backup. Just tap on the “Restore” button and wait as it will extract and perform WhatsApp Business restore.
