Part 2: Transfer WhatsApp from Android to Android via Chat backup
When it comes to transferring WhatsApp to a new phone and both (old and the new) phones are Android, you need to take the help of Google Drive backup. In recent versions of WhatsApp, the app automatically creates a backup of the chats in Google Drive at 2 A.M. This helps in the easy transfer of WhatsApp messages to the newest phone. When you install WhatsApp on the new phone with the same number, you will get the chat history on your phone when this automatic backup is enabled on your device.
1. Open WhatsApp on your source Android device and tap the “three dots” on the corner. Tap “Settings” and choose “Chats”.
2. Now, tap on “Chat backup”. You can now manually backup by clicking on “BACKUP” or set the frequency to backup daily, weekly, etc. as per your choice.
3. Now, on your new device, install WhatsApp from the “Play Store” and log in with the phone number that you were using on the previous phone.
4. While you do it, you will be prompt to restore the backup. Follow the prompts and in minutes, your chats will be on your new device.
This is how to transfer WhatsApp messages to the new phone when the two phones are Android.
